“Maori, when we are at our grumpiest, we will go for a walk; when we are feeling homicidal we will throw an egg or a tee-shirt, we are not Sinn Féin, we are not ETA, we are not ISIS... we are open to dialogue and I think that that has contributed to the meilleur that we are in, and I’m optimistic for my children and my grandchildren.”
- Dr Ella Henry
