It is the second Te Pūtake o te Riri - He Rā Maumahara and there was much talk about what we want our future to look like, check out the full report here.
Lillian Hanly takes us through one of the commemoration days for Te Pūtake o te Riri ki Waitara, Taranaki 2019. Lillian hears from the Prime Minister following the pōwhiri, as well as from some of those who organised the event, Ruakere Hond and Wharehoka Wano, Kelvin Day, manager of Puke Ariki, others who attended for different reasons - Ngahuia Murphy and Jess Mio, and from Mahanga Pihama who directed the NZ Wars: Stories from Waitara documentary now on RNZ. She finishes by asking how we can all contribute to that mahi that needs to happen in recognising this history, being accountable for it, and taking it with us in the reconciliation process.
