Sisters receive inaugural scholarships

Two Northland sisters are the recipients of the inaugural Centre for Indigenous and Maori Governance PhD scholarships.

The scholarships have been provided through a decision by the University of Waikato to allocate scholarships to each of the Research Institutes within the university. Season-Mary Downs and Willow Jean Prime were awarded the scholarships late last year.

Both are graduates of the University of Waikato, Te Piringa - Faculty of Law, and recently completed their Masters of Law in Maori, Pacific and Indigenous Peoples Law.

Season-Mary is currently practicing at McCaw Lewis Lawyers, a Hamilton based law firm where she specialises in Treaty of Waitangi claims processes. Willow-Jean has recently been elected as a Councillor for the Far North District Council and also has her own consultancy business.

The scholarships align to the research focus areas for each Institute. Season-Mary is researching the topic of ‘Nga Taumata o te Moana - Reconciling the Ownership and Governance of Takutai Moana’ under the supervision of Professor Brad Morse and Associate Professor Linda Te Aho, while Willow Jean is researching the ‘Local Government and Maori in Te Tai Tokerau’ under the supervision of Professor Brad Morse, Professor Margaret Wilson and Andrew Erueti.

The sisters say they appreciate the ongoing support from the University of Waikato and Te Piringa - Faculty of Law. They believe in the value of continued education and look forward to working with their supervisors throughout their doctoral studies.

There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
