Commemorating the New Zealand wars

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:19 pm on 27 October 2017

For this first time, there will be a national day of commemoration of the New Zealand Land wars. 

The day of recognition, Rā Maumahara, came about after a students from Otorahanga High School went to a historic site and were so moved, they decided to set up a petition. 

Leah Bell was one of the students involved in getting this petition off the ground. She tells about the long process to getting to this day.
