Dommy Donald Collier. 36 years old, grew up near Waihau Bay; his family went to live in Opotiki when he was 7. He left school at the age of 15 to work with his father. Then, after ten years of odd jobs, he started in apiculture in Whakatane with a pakeha beekeeper. Beekeeper himself for five years now, he has been with the team in Wakaari for 7 months. Since, happy to have found work in the place of his childhood years, he takes advantage of the weekends to go fishing with his eldest son in their little boat. Balanced, impervious to the call of the neighboring pub, he enjoys with his wife and 3 children his new house 50 meters from the ocean. A 4th child is on the way.
