Vincent O’Malley recently took part in the Waitangi Rua Rautau Lectures for 2016, held at Victoria University of Wellington’s Te Herenga Waka Marae. After an initial address from Rotorua mayor Steve Chadwick on the recent council partnership agreement with Te Arawa, the second part of proceedings focused on the role of historians in the Waitangi Tribunal process, with Vincent paying tribute to Professor Alan Ward, who passed away in December 2014. Radio New Zealand recorded proceedings. You can listen here (Vincent’s talk begins about 40 minutes in). Judge Caren Fox, Shonagh Kenderdine, Professor Michael Belgrave and Sir Edward Durie are also featured in the recording.
