Moana Jackson had a profound impact on thousands of lives, says The Spinoff. The esteemed lawyer and teacher passed on Thursday. Margaret Mutu, professor of Māori studies at the University of Auckland and chair of Matike Mai Aotearoa, which Moana Jackson convened, said, “Moana shared his knowledge, scholarship and expertise generously and selflessly with many thousands of people, and particularly young people, from all sectors of society… his legacy will endure – he spent his life sowing the seeds and nurturing the growth of a fair and just country and world.”
