The Waka Ama NZ /Ngā Kaihoe o Aotearoa Board have great pleasure in announcing the establishment of a ‘virtual’ Hall of Fame on our web site to permanently recognise outstanding contributors to the sport of waka ama in New Zealand/Aotearoa. The concept of a Wall or Hall of Fame is commonly accepted practice in all nations that wish to honour people who have contributed and continue to contribute to the establishment and growth of particular sports, whether as competitors or administrators or both. However, rather than develop a physical address where recipients’ names, pictures and awards might be housed and displayed, the Board wishes instead to honour recipients with an award (tohu) that they or their whānau can keep, while also ‘publicly’ displaying the tohu in a special place on the Waka Ama NZ web site.
