This week on TumekeFM we were joined by Ngati Pukeko Kaumatua and Te Runanga o Ngati Awa Chair Joe Mason who shared his knowledge on the celebration of the Waitangi Treaty signing by Ngati Pukeko and Ngati Awa.

This event takes place on the 16th day of June each year in Whakatane at Pohaturoa.

In the interview below he takes us on a brief memory journey and also the time-frame in which Friday 16 June will start in the dark morning hours with a Karakia.
