Eva Rickard

From the collecton Treaty of Waitangi

Eva Rickard gives a brief background to her professional and personal life. Eva is the middle child of a family of fifteen and was born at Whaingaroa on the Raglan golf course. Her grandmother was a direct descendant of Te Rauparaha.

Eva considers that the Treaty - regarded by Māori as an honourable document - has been dishonoured by successive governments.

Eva also talks about the Hīkoi to Waitangi and Te Kotahitanga.
