Two excerpts from the one hundred and twenty-fifth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, recorded at Waitangi in 1965. An unidentified reporter outlines the programme for the ceremony, which included a challenge and haka powhiri to the Vice Regal party given by the pupils of St. Stephens and Queen Victoria schools, a Royal Salute, followed by a twenty-one gun salute. The second excerpt is the speech given by Sir Turi Carroll, the President of the New Zealand Māori Council.
