From Checkpoint, 6:14 pm on 25 January 2021

This year's celebration of the Rātana faith founder has been subdued with fewer followers making the annual pilgrimage.

Monday marks the 148th birthday of Tahu Pōtiki Wiremu Rātana, but festivites have been scaled down this year.

Meriana Johnsen and cameraman Dom Thomas were there and filed this report.
