Ko Tākuta Pita Sharples tērā kua tohua mai hei Tā o te Kāhui Hiranga o Aotearoa i roto i ngā tohu hōnore i te rā huritau o te Kuini o Ingarangi i te rā nei.

Nō tāna tohutanga ki te tohu CBE i te tau iwa tekau mō ana mahi mā te iwi Māori, i pīkau tonu ia i aua mahi i roto i āna mahi tōrangapū.

Kāre e mutu ana aua mahi, ahakoa tāna hekenga iho i te mahi tōrangapū i te tau ki muri nei, hāunga anō ngā utu.
