Te Tai Treaty Settlement Stories Ministry of Culture and Heritage Project is being launched at Mataatua this Friday at 11am. Reference will be made to the effect of the raupatu on the hapu and how we have all persevered and survived despite generations of Crown interference in our lives since 1865. Several of the videos that have been prepared also include interviews with some of our hapu members as well as re-creations of some of the historical events. Hopefully, it will be a useful resource to help raise awareness of our history within our own as well as the wider community. So the pohiri is at 11.00am.
