Submitted by admin2 on Fri, 25/09/2015 - 3:41pm

Aue te aroha te mamae i ahau e.

Our hearts are so sad to hear from Lisa McNab that her amazing mum passed away this afternoon. She has asked us to let all our people know that the whanau are keeping whaea Waireti at home this evening where they will hold services at 7pm.

Waireti will be taken to a whanau funeral director in Whangarei later tonight and will return to Te Paatu marae at 6am tomorrow morning.

"The 56-year-old was one of the founders of Te Kawariki, the movement that brought out a new generation of northern youth in the early 1980s to protest the crown’s failure to honour the Treaty of Waitangi.
