Ngā mihi o te Tau Hou!
It is with great pride that the Board and team of NZ Māori Tourism congratulate our Chief Executive, Pania Tyson-Nathan, on her recognition in the New Year’s Honours as a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Māori and Business.
We all know Pania prefers to be behind the scene and is a total team player, however this award recognises the outstanding work that she has done over the years for Māori, for business, and for Māori tourism and this reward reflects well on all in these sectors. The numerous facebook messages, emails, texts and calls that have flooded in over the past fortnight show the high esteem in which many of us hold her.
Kāore te kumara e kōrero ana mo tōna ake reka, engari tau kē e Pania!
Ngā mihi, na,
Dale Stephens, NZ Māori Tourism Chairperson, and the team at NZ Māori Tourism
