Creative New Zealand mourns the passing of much respected and admired curator, academic and historian Professor Jonathan Mane-Wheoki.
Professor Mane-Wheoki was a member of the former Maori arts board of Creative New Zealand Te Waka Toi and later a member of the Arts Council, where he served for many years.
Toitu te whenua whatungarongaro te tangata; E hika nou te tai ahiahi e timu ake nei, waiho mai ko tai ata ki muri nei.Kia au to moe i te okiokinga a tini a te mano, e moe e moe moe mai ra!
The land endures while we the living are destined to return to the mother earth...O sire yours is the receding evening tide...leave to us the morning tide. May your sleep be restful as you join the many the multitude who have passed before you...rest in the sleep of never waking…
