Bookmarks with Jacinta Ruru

From Afternoons, 2:30 pm on 15 May 2024

Our Bookmarks guest today has made history more than once

In her whanau she was the first to pursue a university education - studying Maori and politics and finally law at Otago University

The once 'shy student' then went on to become Aotearoa's first ever Māori law professor , and recently, the university's inaugural deputy vice chancellor Māori

Professor Jacinta Ruru is with Jesse for Bookmarks this week.
