New Zealand's sole Māori hockey player, Ngāpuhi's Samantha Harrison, is set to make an appearance in the Black Sticks' match against Ghana later today.
The team has had a successful campaign thus far, beating Scotland 6-1 yesterday.
Harrison, who made her Blacksticks debut in 2009, has remained an asset to the team.
She was a part of the team that won silver at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Dehli.
Rereātea reporter Wikitoria Day will be speaking to her after her match tonight.
