We welcome your contribution towards a scholarship in memory of Jolene Patuawa-Tuilave, a prominent Māori lawyer, who passed away on 24 June 2010 in Tauranga following a battle with cancer. This Māori Leadership in Law Scholarship is being established at the University of Otago, in partnership with Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua and Jolene's whānau, as a legacy to Jolene and to inspire other young Māori law students to follow their dreams.
Ka mate atu he tētē kura, ka whakaete mai he tētē kura.
One fern frond dies away, another fern frond pushes its way through.
(This whakatauki is a statement about regeneration in nature which is aligned to regeneration and continuity in human life. Kura, the colour of red ochre, is a symbol of the rangatira who wore it, the chiefly leaders of hapū and iwi. This whakataukī offers reassurance that when one phase of our life ends, another begins; when one leader passes on, another will arise to assume the mantle.)
