Today marks the 40th anniversary of a month-long Māori land march's arrival at Parliament.
Five thousand people blocked the motorway into Wellington in October 1975 in what were the final steps of the North Island march for Māori land rights.
They brought the phrase 'Not One More Acre' down with them from the Far North to call for an end to the loss of Māori land.
The movement was lead by the late Dame Whina Cooper, who was 79 years old.
A petition of support with 60,000 signatures was presented to Parliament after the march.
The march's importance has been referenced recently as the government reviews the Te Ture Whenua Māori Act.
Māori claimants oppose the Crown reviewing the legislation and will take their case to the Waitangi Tribunal to decide who has authority to change Māori land laws.
