From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 24 January 2018

Waiata, haka and speeches from the day the 28th Māori Battalion arrived home from the Second World War have been put online for the first time. Some of the descendants of the soldiers congregated in Wellington last night to hear the historic recordings of the 1946 pōwhiri which are part of Ngā ​Taonga Sound and Vision's second early Māori recordings exhibition. Te Manu Korihi reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui was at the launch.
