Farewell and gratitude for a wise elder…

Rose on the shores of her beloved Waikaremoana



We are specially sad to hear of the recent death of Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere.

We are hugely respectful of her deep wairua, courage, liveliness of spirit and vision, and her extensive work in education,  in Aotearoa and around the world.  We have admired her ability to challenge conventional Pākehā wisdom in many contexts.  She always had a wonderful sense of humour, too.  She will be missed not only in Aotearoa, but in many circles of thought and vision throughout the world.

Moe mai rā, e te māreikura, moe mai rā, moe mai rā…
