Emeritus Professor Sir Mason Durie

Sir Mason is one of New Zealand’s most highly respected academics. His research on whānau development and kaupapa Māori research imperatives have provided a significant knowledge base to advance Maori research and community based Māori research. With his substantial knowledge of Māori health research, Sir Mason has been instrumental in guiding and advising Wai Rangahau since its inception in 2014, and Te Whānau o Waipareira are honoured to acknowledge Sir Mason as the Pou Wai Rangahau.
