SPECIAL MOMENT: Te Utu o Te Kiriraraunga

Feb. 27, 2020, 7:57 p.m.

This episode of Haukāinga brings together images from inside Te Rau Aroha, the museum at Waitangi that commemorates all Māori who have served in the armed forces since 1840 to present day. 3600 served in the famed 28 Māori Battalion in WWII. The Battalion was one of the most celebrated and decorated units in the New Zealand forces due to their reputation on the battlefields.

Reflections on the opening of Te Rau Aroha are shared from Minister of Defence Ron Mark, Prime Minister Jacinda Arden, Waitangi National Trust Chair, Pita Tipene and veteran D'arcy Bailey QSM.
