TEU congratulates Dr Waikerepuru for Queen’s honour

‘E kore e taea te aukati i a tātau’

Longstanding TEU kaumātua Dr Huirangi Eruera Waikerepuru became a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit yesterday for his services to Māori. James Houkāmau, TEU’s Te Tumu Arataki (Māori vice-president), says the union is delighted at the recognition for one of its most prominent and active members.

“In his own inimitable style, tōna māhaki, tōna hūmārie, ‘te ihu o te waka’, devoid of arrogance, he inspires, he encourages, he leads by example,” said James.

James says Dr Waikerepuru is an icon.

“With leaders like our Koro Huirangi leading the way in the promotion of Te Reo Māori within TEU but also in every sphere of Aotearoa New Zealand society nothing can stop us in our bid to personify the underlying principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.”

“E Koro e, te kai a te rangatira, he kōrero. Te tohu o te rangatira, he manaaki. Te mahi a te rangatira, he whakatira i te iwi. Ko koe rā e Koro e!”
