J.C. Sturm (Taranaki, Te Whakatōhea), also known as Te Kare Papuni and Jacquie Baxter, was a pioneering writer of poetry and short stories.
Long overshadowed by her first husband, the poet James K. Baxter, Jacquie emerged in later life as a unique and important voice in New Zealand literature in her own right.
She was born in Ōpunake in 1927, and died in 2009.
