Vincent Malcolm-Buchanan passed away in Auckland on Saturday 1 June, after a period of intense illness. Aligned with Ngāti Whare of Te Whaiti, and Ngāti Pikiao of Rotoiti, he was an exceptional teacher, exemplary scholar and sensitive mentor. As a youth in Rotorua, he dazzled tourists on the concert stage, and pursued a career in hospitality. Contact with overseas visitors prompted him to aim much higher, and he commenced a degree in Religious Studies at Canterbury in the early 2000s. Vincee transferred to Waikato, completing his BA in Religious Studies & Anthropology in 2006.

Kei te taumata okiokinga e Te Wharehuia
Nā tō wehenga kua pōwhara te ao Māori
Hoake nā ki te paenga purapura tuawhiti
He ihuoneone mō te reo me ōna tikanga
Kua ea ai tō rahi, tō ihi tē taea te wareware
Nā tō Hinenuitepō porokī, kua riro
Nā reira, takoto pū ki tona korowai manaaki
