Respected kuia mourned in Christchurch
Mrs Stirling also has whakapapa links to Te Whanau a Apanui and Ngati Porou iwi on the East Coast.
Maori Party co-leader Pita Sharples says she will be sadly missed. He says during his visits to Christchurch “Aunty Kui”, as she was also known, made her contribution felt, whether it was the earthquake recovery, trade training, or runanga business.
Mrs Turia says no matter what the occasion Maruhaeremuri Stirling always brought a special dignity and presence to any event.
Mrs Stirling’s body is lying in state at Rehua Marae in Christchurch.
