Strong message sent to parliament from Rātana over Te Tiriti

From Morning Report, 7:35 am on 25 January 2024

Māori will not sit idly by should the government attempt to meddle with te Tiriti o Waitangi.

That's the message from yesterday's annual Rātana celebrations held near Whanganui.

Politicians from across the spectrum flocked to Rātana Pā only a few days after the weekend's national hui called by Kiingi Tūheitia.

The celebrations were full of kōrero from visiting politicians and Māori leaders.

 Rātana Pā representative Te Taepa Kameta spoke to Corin Dann.
