From Checkpoint, 5:48 pm on 8 July 2022

The remains of more than 100 Moriori have been returned today, repatriated from London's Natural History Museum where they've been held for a century.

It's the largest-ever return of ancestors, and they were welcomed in a ceremony at Te Papa this morning.

Ashleigh McCaull and cameraman Angus Dreaver were there.
