The Vault - Parihaka and Te Whiti

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 19 November 2012

Deborah Nation has pieced together archival material on New Zealand's own 5th of November event. It was on this date in 1881, that colonial troops invaded the coastal Taranaki settlement of Parihaka, which was the hub of the passive resistance movement lead by the two prophets Tohu Kakahi and Te Whiti o Rongomai.
