Te Moana Nui-a-Kiwa scholarship recipients

Another veteran of the 28th Māori Battalion has passed away.  Arthur Brooking of Ngāti Porou sadly passed away two days out from Anzac Day and four days from turning 94.

The news also comes as eight Māori recipients were honoured today with scholarships commemorating the late Second Lieutenant, Te Moana Nui a Kiwa Ngarimu, as well as the 28th Māori Battalion.

Among the recipients were aspiring paediatricians, lawyers, artists, teachers and philosophers.
