Riki Ellison - Missile Defence

From Waitangi Monday, 10:07 am on 6 February 2014

Riki Ellison (Taranaki, Ngai Tahu and Ngati Porou) left Christchurch as an eight-year-old to live in the US. He's the only New Zealander to be part of a winning Super Bowl team; he won three times with the San Francisco 49ers. Today he is the founder and chairman of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance - a non-profit organisation advocating for hi-tech missile defence systems which he says will protect the national security of the US and its allies.
