From Morning Report, 7:15 am on 22 January 2024

The Prime Minister will be bracing for further challenge from Māori this week, having seen the extraordinary turnout over the weekend at Tūrangawaewae Marae in Waikato.

About 10,000 people attended the historic one-day meeting to discuss Government policy.

The event was pitched as primarily for iwi to come together and map out a plan, with a message of resilience and resistance.
