He tangata rongonui no Ngāti Porou. He tangata pūmau ki nga tikanga o te ao Māori.

I kuraina ki Waiomatatini, ki Te Aute Kāreti, ki te whare wānanga hoki o Canterbury. Ko ia te Maori mātāmua kia pōtaetia ki nga tohu mātauranga o nga whare wānanga. I ū hoki i a ia nga tohu MA, LLB me te Honorary Doctorate, D Lit.

Na āna mahi huhua i whakaatu tōna kaha me tōna māia ki te kake ki nga tini taumata o te ao whānui.

I tu rawa ia hei mema pāremata, a, ko tāna tino mahi he kōkiri mo nga iwi Maori kia puta ai he oranga, he whakamārama hoki i te āhua o nga ture a te Kāwanatanga.

I tahuri a ia ki te whakatū marae. Nāna hoki i kōkiri kia tū he
whare ako i nga mahi whakairo kia puta ai nga tohunga whakatū whare whakairo.

Ko Nga Mōteatea a nga iwi i kohikohia e ia hei taonga ma
te motu.

Ko tēnei tāna koha ki a tātau. E koro, ka whakamoemiti ra te ngākau mo ēnei kupu āu ma nga mokopuna e tipu ake nei.

He worked as a teacher, civil servant in the Education Department, Māori Education Lecturer at Victoria University, publisher and editor. Wiremu was active in the Anglican Church, and a broadcaster in te reo Māori for Te Upoko o Te Ika Radio.

They edited three collections in te reo Māori with Te Herenga Waka University Press, new editions of which are published in 2024.
