Investiture: Tamati Reedy

Governor-General Anand Satyanand performed the accolade of knighthood (better known as ‘dubbing’) of Emeritus Professor Tamati Muturangi Reedy at his investiture as a knight companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit at Hiruharama , Ruatōria, on 25 May 2011. The award was given for services to education. Consistent with popular belief, the ancient ritual of shoulder-tapping really is done with a sword, but no proclamation such as ‘Arise, Sir So-and-so,’ or ‘I hereby dub thee Sir Someone’ is used.
