Pikitia of Reomoana WALKER,
Kia ora whanau,
Thought this might be of interest for those searching for WALKER whanau or WAAKA whanau.
Extracted from Te Ao Hou magazine, 1965.
It has taken 18 years to complete the building. The carvings alone are valued at Â£9,000.
MISS REOMOANA WALKER (see photo above), the registrar at the Magistrates Court in Masterton, is one of the few women to hold such a position, and possibly the only Maori woman to do so. Miss Walker's home district is Gladstone, near Masterton, where her parents, Mr and Mrs John Walker (Waaka) are farming. Educated at Hukarere Maori Girls' College, she was head prefect in her final year, and has been with the Justice Department in Masterton for about a year. Apart from acting as registrar at regular sittings of the Masterton court, she is the criminal clerk in the public office, being responsible for the collection of fines, the preparation of the court list of sittings, and other related duties.
Praised by colleagues for her efficiency, she very much enjoys her work.
Lovely photo of Reomoana Walker.
Maa te waa whanau.
