A pioneering Māori scholar who has helped define the new field of Indigenous Studies has been elected a fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand Te Apārangi.

The honour recognises distinction in research, scholarship or the advancement of knowledge at the highest international standards.

Through his expansive publication, University of Waikato Professor Brendan Hokowhitu from Ngāti Pūkenga has created the sub-fields of Indigenous Masculinities, and Indigenous Sport and Physical Education, as well as leading the Kaumātua Mana Motuhake project which is part of the Ageing Well National Science Challenge.

Another of the 19 new fellows and honorary fellows is Victoria University of Wellington Professor Rewi Newnham of Ngāpuhi, whose research on pollen records has global significance in understanding environmental and climate change and the contemporary effects of pollen on human health.
