Another successful week of Waitangi commemorations has wrapped up for the year - the result of effective collaboration between Ngāpuhi and many other groups who've put in six months of preparation leading up to the occasion.
Waitangi Treaty Grounds Cultural Manager and Commemorations Coordinator Mori Rapana says Waitangi staff, Police, Iwi Liaison Officers, Fire and Emergency, Diplomatic Protection Squad, Ministers Offices and Bishops are only some of those who united to ensure New Zealands most significant day ran smoothly.
