6          Acknowledgements

 

1)         Kahurangi Dame Nganeko Kaihau Minhinnick DNZM, JP – We acknowledge the passing of a superlative woman. She was a champion for her people, for the environment and for social justice. Dame Nganeko was held in very high regard by all, as a leader in Maoridom and a role-model to us all. Dame Nganeko Minhinnick, who led a landmark Waitangi Tribunal claim to clean up the Manukau Harbour, died aged 77. The Ngati Te Ata and Waiohua elder from Tahuna Marae at Waiuku went to the tribunal in 1982 over pollution of the Manukau Harbour by the Mangere sewage treatment plant, the NZ Steel mill at Glenbrook and other developments. The tribunal's report in 1985 said it was the most wide-ranging claim that it had considered up to that time, and its findings set out a new basis for the Maori role as kaitiaki, or guardians, of their ancestral lands and waterways throughout the country. The report, and Dame Nganeko's subsequent submissions to the Government, laid the groundwork for what became the 1991 Resource Management Act. She took her case to the world stage, inviting a United Nations rapporteur to Tahuna Marae and attending many UN forums on indigenous issues. She also sat on the Auckland Regional Council. She was made a Dame in the 2013 Queen's Birthday honours list.

 


 

2)         Tusanilefaia'ao Ieremia Chris Salesa – Chris Salesa was a legend of the East Tamaki bowling club, he was the club's most successful bowler ever with a stunning 22 club titles, he died suddenly on June 7 and was buried at the Mangere Lawn Cemetery last week. He won one Auckland Centre title, the 2017 Auckland champion of champions triples title with Malcolm Wright and Leon Wenzlick, was a member of the East Tamaki team which won the Auckland's inter-club title in 2015 and won a gold, silver and bronze at the World Masters Games in April this year. Salesa also represented Samoa at the World Bowls Championship in Christchurch last year and was a strong advocate for Pasifika Bowls. He was as keen a contributor of the green serving on the club's executive and match committees and as tournament manager for a number of years. East Tamaki Bowling Club president Don Parker says the club will be poorer without Salesa, "Chris, it's fair to say, is the best bowler in East Tamaki Bowling Club history. No one has won more titles in our club than he has and it would be an achievement for any member to even get close to the number of titles he won.” Chris was also instrumental in setting up other sports clubs like Rugby and Cricket in Otara.
