Ngāti Kuia commemorate Endeavour's arrival at Meretoto

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 28 May 2019

The plans to mark the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook's arrival here have revived old wounds in the north where a boycott has been called for.

But in the south it's a different story. Local iwi Ngāti Kuia will be central to the Tuia 250 Ki Totaranui commemorations that will mark the Endeavour's arrival into Meretoto (Ship Cove).

RNZ's Te Tau Ihu (top of the south) reporter Tracy Neal has the story.
