News: Passing of Teresa Aporo

The Council regrets to advise the passing of Teresa Aporo of Kohunui Marae on Saturday 27 August. Teresa had been a valued member of the Māori Standing Committee from November 2016 to June 2021.

Representing Kohunui Marae, she was a passionate supporter of values that strengthened a community, her whanau, the environment, nature, and education through the sharing of knowledge.

She had strong beliefs and was vocal on Māori representation. Our sincere condolences go out to her whanau and the wider community that she belonged to.

Moe mai rā e hoa, aroha nui.
