On the 18th December, the final reading of Te Pire kia Unuhia te Hara kai Runga i a Rua Kēnana The Rua Kēnana Pardon Bill will take place at Parliament. Following that, there will be a gathering at Maungapōhatu of the Crown and the descendants of Rua Kēnana himself. Lillian Hanly had the opportunity to visit Maungapōhatu late last month. There, she took part in a working bee being held in preparation of the gathering and was able to talk to those present about what they thought of the Bill, and what they hoped the future would look like.
