Kupu Korikori : A personal opinion and comment by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Muru Walters who talks this week about Ta Moko - Tattoo.

It's been just over ten years since the we mourned the death of Wiremu Parker of Ngāti Porou, linguist, educationist and radio broadcaster.
During the week, the Stout Research Centre of Victoria University of Wellington recalled the legacy of Wiremu Parker by inviting a former friend, student and broadcasting collegue of Parker's, Piripi Walker, to speak on Parker's legacy to Māori scholarship.
Piripi of Ngāti Raukawa Te Au Ki Te Tonga wondered why the Centre had asked him to lecture on Wiremu Parker, a thought consistent with Piripi's own humility, self effacement and gentleness.
Here is an edited version of the lecture, Ko Te Rata Kauru Nui - Wiremu Parker - his legacy of Māori Scholarship.

Music : Ngāti Porou Group - 'Te Wiwi Nati'

Music : Witerina Harris - 'Haere Mai Ra E Te Kawana'
