A Tribute to Dr Tamar Murachver

Thumbnail Tamar Murachver2Tēnei te tino mihia ki a Takuta Tamar Murachver. Me maumaharatanga te wahine atawhai mo te tautoko ngā tauira Māori. He pukenga ramarama me te wahine purotu. Ka whakaturia ia te turanga o te Kaiawhina mo Te Tari Whakamātou o Hinengaro. Me whakamoemiti mo tāna pukumahi mo ngā tauira. E te Whaea, moe mai, moemoe ra.

We pay tribute of the highest order to Dr Tamar Murachver who passed away peacefully January 2013. Tamar held the first Kaiawhina position in the Department of Psychology for 21 years. Many former Māori Psychology students have acknowledged her gentle strength in supporting their academic pursuits and providing for their pastoral needs. It is with humble gratitude that we thank this strong woman for developing the Kaiawhina role and making it visible.
