Observing Waitangi Day at King's College
Due to COVID-19 restrictions on gathering, we live-streamed and recorded our Waitangi Day Observation Service, meaning that we are able to share it to our wider community.
Our guest speaker, along with visitors Mr David Moko and Mr Roddy Perkins, is New Zealand historian Dr Alistair Reese from the Karuwhā Trust, a trust whose patron is Bishop Te Kitohi (Kito) Wiremu Pikaahu ONZM, the Bishop of Te Tai Tokerau.
David and Alistair, who both ‘rohe’ from Tapuika, near Te Puke, work extensively in the area of bicultural reconciliation in light of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
