Dame Judith Binney/Te Tōmairangi o Te Aroha
In publications over forty years, Judith Binney (1940–2011) made an exceptional contribution to our understanding of New Zealand’s shared past.
Her commitment to the writing of Māori history, and particularly to that of the people of Te Urewera, was acknowledged in many ways, including the Prime Minister’s Award for Literary Achievement (2006) and the name Te Tōmairangi o Te Aroha (‘the gentle rain of love’), bestowed at Waikirikiri Marae in Te Urewera at the 2009 launch of Encircled Lands: Te Urewera 1820–1921.
