About this collection

Minister's Foreword

From humble beginnings grew a leader who, although faced by many challenges, triumphed over adversity to become one of Māoridom's greatest economic and political influences of our time.

This symposium is a fitting tribute to Sir Graham Stanley Latimer, a man who once led the New Zealand Māori Council in its most controversial period—the 1980s. It was then the Council, with Sir Graham at its helm, mounted a legal challenge against the Government over the sale of State-owned assests and won.

Throughout this symposium we will all share our stories and our experiences of this outstanding leader. We pay tribute to the invaluable contribution he has made to the social, economic and political success that Māori enjoy today.

No reira—ka mihi ki a koe, e te rangatira.

Hon Parekura Horomia, Minister of Māori Affairs
