A Tribute to George Waitai Tikao

The Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust would like to pay tribute to George Waitai Tikao (28 January 1933-27 July 2019) whose memorial service was held at Rapaki marae recently. George was the upoko of Ngāi Tārewa and Ngāti Īrakehu at Onuku and a leading Ngai Tahu kaumatua for many years on the Peninsula who supported many projects that bettered the environment and the wider community. Gone, but very much not forgotten.
