From the Raindrop to the River to the Sea

Tame Iti (Ngai Tuhoe / Waikato / Te Arawa) to give Bishop Sir Paul Reeves Memorial Lecture

Tame Iti (Ngai Tuhoe / Waikato / Te Arawa), will give the Bishop Sir Paul Reeves Memorial Lecture at 7:30pm on 9 November, at the Sir Paul Reeves Building at AUT, Auckland.

Tame Iti is known as many things… Activist, Artist, Terrorist and Cyclist. Literally wearing his heritage on his face, Tame is hard to miss in a crowd despite being just 5'4 tall. Most associated with Tūhoe, Tame Iti also has links with the Waikato tribes of Ngāti Wairere and Ngāti Hauā, and with Te Arawa.

His 40-year history of controversial and theatrical displays of political expression have included protests against the Vietnam War and apartheid in South Africa, pitching a tent on Parliament grounds and calling it the Maori embassy, shooting a national flag in front of government officials and the curious spate of public meetings where he appeared with a ladder so as to speak eye to eye with officials who were seated on stage.

Tame will discuss the concept of mana and how this empowers all people to transcend concepts of authority. He will also explore the methods employed by Tūhoe where decisions for the iwi start with the whānau and push their way up. From the raindrop, to the river, to the sea.

We invite you to be part of this memorable public event brought to you by Leadership NZ, AUT and RNZ National.

Modelled on the prestigious BBC Reith Lectures, the Bishop Sir Paul Reeves Memorial Lectures, which began in 2012, commemorate Sir Paul Reeves, an outstanding leader and visionary, and are designed to provide commentary on New Zealand’s progress as a nation. They are a drawcard for thinking New Zealanders wanting to engage in shaping a positive future.

The memorial lecture is organised by Leadership New Zealand, with sponsorship support from AUT, and the involvement of RNZ National as a broadcasting partner. Sir Paul Reeves was Chancellor of AUT from 2005 until his death in 2011.
