Sept. 15, 2021, 1:40 p.m.

Hilda Halkyard Harawira shares some history of the first petition for Te Reo Māori in 1972 and those who were directly involved in that petition. Hilda also talks about certain advocates for te reo Māori like Rawiri Paratene and Mōrehu McDonald who visited Hillary College in Auckland to speak about the kaupapa, collecting signatures for the petition and promoting Te Rā o Te Reo Māori 14th September. Over thirty thousand signatures were manually collected in support of the petition and now today Te Reo Māori is an official language of New Zealand.
