Te Aupouri's Ralph Hotere today received NZ's highest honour,
and he is now part of a select group of New Zealanders
who're members of the order of NZ.
At a small ceremony with family and friends in Dunedin,
the Governor General Sir Jerry Mateparae acknowledged Ralph Hotere
as one of NZ's most important contemporary artists.
The 81-year-old's work is represented
in major collections in NZ and in art museums throughout the world.
