In the 1930s pioneering 20th-century cultural go-between Professor Ivan Sutherland worked with East Coast Māori, who later named him Paikea, after one of their founding ancestors, in gratitude. He is shown in 1934 (standing second from right in hat and glasses) at a hui at Tokomaru Bay for visitors from the Cook Islands. His son, scientist Oliver Sutherland, is himself a cultural go-between and in 1973 was a founder of the Auckland Committee on Racial Discrimination (ACORD), formed to oppose institutional racism in New Zealand society.
