The University of Auckland welcomed their new Pro Vice-Chancellor Māori on Tuesday. Professor Cindy Kiro was embraced by staff and students alike, at a very packed and cramped Waipapa marae. Originally from Whangarei of Ngāpuhi and Ngāti Hine descent, and a staunch advocate for Maori academia, Prof. Kiro is taking over from Matua Jim Peters, who has held the position since 2006. Tuwhenuaroa Natanahira went down to the marae yesterday and spoke to a few people at the pōwhiri about what the position Prof. Kiro is undertaking means to them, and what they are hopeful for in the future.
