Two high flying wahine have been selected as this year’s Nga Pae o te Maramatanga scholars, allowing them to do a year’s postgraduate study in the United States.

Rachael Jones from Ngati Kahungunu works at law firm Chapman Tripp advising iwi on Treaty of Waitangi settlement issues.

She intends to complete a Master of Laws specialising in constitutional and indigenous law at Columbia University in New York.

Melissa Derby from Ngati Ranginui is a Whaia Nga Pae o te Maramatanga scholar completing a PhD in education at the University of Canterbury after picking up arts degrees from Victoria University of Wellington and AUT University and a graduate certificate in indigenous studies from Columbia University in New York.

She intends to spend time at Colorado State University and at San Diego University, California researching critical theories of race, ethnicity and indigeneity.

Nga Pae co-director Jacinta Ruru says they are impressive Maori scholars at the forefront of intellectual thinking whose work will strongly contribute to the institute’s vision of Maori leading Aotearoa New Zealand into the future.
