Dame Catherine Tizard is a past Governor General of New Zealand. Always a lot of good humored fun. Dame Cath is pictured here with Eileen Parore, an amazing school teacher, proponent of kapa haka (Maori performing arts), the furtherance of Te Reo (the Maori language) and an inspirer and encourager of young Maori peoples dreams. She worked tirelessly for her husband Tom‘s people of the Ngapuhi tribe.
She made us all dream big. She believed that Maori kids could do anything. While I was in the USA, Eileen Paraore passed away. Remembering her today… and to her family… thanks for sharing your great mom, with us all and making Kiwis better people.
