The New Zealand Olympic Games Committee is mourning the death of its cultural adviser and kaumatua. The Tertiary Education Union says it's concerned that there are other motives behind the proposed closure of Victoria Univerisity's Maori Business Programme. The Ministry of Maori Development - Te Puni Kokiri wants tangata whenua to gain higher qualifications and better employment, and it's hoping scholarhips in engineering could help them do that. A long time organisation which helps to empower people to achieve heath and well-being through work, culture and leisure has appointed a Maori president, and a Maori organisation name.
