Kai Tahu Bishop Announced for All South Island Tribes
Very pleased to hear that the Venerable Richard Wallace will be the next Pihopa for Te Wai Pounamou (Anglican Bishop for the South Island) and als very pleased that Richard is Kai Tahu - a member of the largest tribe in the South Island (also known to North Island Maori as Ngai Tahu). But, as I was often reminded when I lived in the Diocese of Nelson (northern region of the South Island), there are other Maori tribes in Te Wai Pounamou than Kai Tahu! Richard will be Pihopa of them all!
