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.

Recently a ‘homeless count’ was undertaken with the idea of providing a snapshot of the minimum number of people experiencing unsheltered and temporary homelessness at one point in time. It was called, Ira Mata, Ira Tangata: Auckland’s Homeless Count - the name recognises that each person embodies those who have come before them and those in the future. It reflects that a person is not defined by their homelessness and that people who are homeless are valued – they ‘count’. Funded by Auckland Council and implemented by the Housing First Auckland collective, it was the first time a street count has happened in NZ. Today is World Homeless Day and the findings of the count have been announced, Lillian Hanly takes us through those findings.
