Kua hinga he totara nui o te waonui a Tane. Tangi hotuhotu ana nga manu. Me to iwi Maori. The tributes have been flowing endlessly for one of Aotearoa's most leading legal minds and indigenous scholars. Moana Jackson has died. He was a tireless advocate for criminal justice reform and the dismantling of racist structures. He transformed the ways many view the criminal justice system - and has been described as a visionary and revolutionary leader. His close friend Jane Kelsey spoke to Mani Dunlop about his legacy.
