Wiremu Tamihana – One of Ten Greatest New Zealanders according to NZ Herald
13 November 2013 marked the 150th birthday of the New Zealand Herald. As a part of the 150th celebrations, the Herald asked its editors to retrospectively select NZer’s of the year for every year since the paper was founded in 1863. A shortlist of 25 was determined and then a final top ten greatest NZer’s.
Whether you read this publication or not, it is noteworthy that Wiremu Tamihana was named as one of the top ten based on his vision for Maori and Pakeha partnership, Maori self-determination and overall peace amongst the two peoples.
