LIFE’S SUNRISE FLOWS IN THE VEINS: TE RANGIHIROA – SIR PETER BUCK
Oh navigator, Am-Kiwi Maori father, New York, Hawaii, Ngati Mutunga, Yale scholar, Swedish Order of the North Starman, our peak of Maunga Loa. Your mind a swirling ocean of te aute, Colenso thoughts. Rare exotic-novel man abroad. Medicine man of culture back home. Those forbearing formidable, Polynesian Vikings of The Sunrise always whispering wisdom of life's tupuna flows in the veins.
–Ode to Te Rangi Hīroa, Sir Peter Buck, Kiwi hero.
