Te Ahi Kaa for 9 June 2013

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:05 pm on 9 June 2013

In the early hours of 3 June 2013 Maraea Rakuraku joined a contingent of buses, vans and cars travelling en masse to Wellington to mark the signing of the Deed of Settlement between the Crown and Tuhoe. Maraea provides a fly-on-the-wall account of the event, from the controversy about tickets needed to enter some of the day's events, to interviews with the Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Chris Finlayson, Crown negotiator John Wood, and Tuhoe negotiator Taamati Kruger.
