Lee and Love appointed to Te Papa Board

Prime Minister and Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage, Helen Clark today announced the appointments of Hon Sandra Lee and Professor Ngatata Love to the Board of Te Papa.

They replace retiring Board members Mark Solomon and Josie Karanga.

Hon Sandra Lee of Auckland (Ngāi Tahu), has served as Local Government and Conservation Minister, and is also a former High Commissioner to Niue. She has extensive experience in central and local government, and in conservation issues.

Professor Ngatata Love of Wellington (Te Atiawa), is Professor of Business at Victoria University and Mana Whenua Professor at Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiārangi’s Wellington Campus. He has undertaken wide-ranging work on Māori issues over many years, including as Te Puni Kōkiri's Chief Executive.

Sandra Lee and Ngatata Love have been appointed for three-year terms from August 2007.

Helen Clark also acknowledged the contributions and commitment of retiring members Mark Solomon and Josie Karanga.

"Mark and Josie both served on the Te Papa Board for six years. They made a significant contribution to the development of its Mâori protocols and exhibitions of iwi taonga and I thank them for all they did for Te Papa," Helen Clark said.


Hon Sandra Lee’s experience as a former High Commissioner to Niue (2003-2005) and as Minister of Local Government and Conservation and Associate Minister of Māori Affairs between 1999 and 2002 have given her a strong knowledge of cultural, conservation, iwi, and local government issues which will assist the Board’s deliberations. Sandra Lee is of Ngai Tahu descent.

Professor Ngatata Love (Te Atiawa) is Mana Whenua Professor for Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi’s Wellington campus and Professor of Business at Victoria University. Professor Love was the first Māori to gain a PhD in Aotearoa, and is Emeritus Professor and a Member of Massey University Council. He is also a former CEO of Te Puni Kōkiri and chairs the Wellington Tenths Trust Board.
