Sound Archives - Our earliest recorded Maori radio broadcast

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:35 pm on 13 September 2017

To mark Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision has launched an online exhibition of the oldest recordings of a Māori radio broadcast, which was a hui held at Turangawaewae Marae in 1938 to mark the opening of a carved home for the Māori King Korokī and his family. 

Sarah Johnston from Ngā Taonga plays some excerpts of this audio taonga.
