ANZAC Day and Our Māori Hōia

April 19, 2022, 12:05 p.m.

Anzac Day is a day to pay homage and remember all Australian and New Zealand military personnel who have served and died in the war, including the Korean War. Professor Makere Mutu talks about a controversial lecture she delivered on Anzac Day at Napier in 2013 which focussed on Te Tiriti o Waitangi in a future constitution, Removing the shackles of colonisation. Makere reminds us how our Māori soldiers of whom many were still very much teenagers never received the same recognition or benefits as the Pākehā soldiers following the war. Makere did acknowledge that there have been some significant changes in recognition over the years and shares some memories of her father back in the days marching on Anzac Day.
