From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 10 November 2022

Whānau in Te Urewera are celebrating the return of several taonga.

The taonga were stolen more than a hundred years ago during the police invasion of Maungapōhatu, a community deep in the ranges.

The stolen items included including walking sticks, flags and garments.

Professor Taiarahia Black helped secure their return and spoke to Morning Report about their history.
