Ru Whenua work acknowledged: Heroism award to Ngai Tahu Fireman

Great to see the heroism of Scott Shadbolt acknowledged by the government today. Scott was the first participant in our research and has just been awarded the New Zealand Bravery Medal for his heroic efforts as an USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) first responder through the February 22 earthquake of 2011. 

Ka nui te mihi ki a koe Scott, he toa, he rangatira!


Updates of our research are regularly posted on these pages but also Lincoln University's ‘Conversations’ webpage www.lincoln.ac.nz/conversation/maori-resilience/ and a Facebook page www.facebook.com/MaoriResilience .
