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.
