Matawhero and the New Zealand Wars

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:30 pm on 9 November 2017

On October 28 we held the first official commemoration for the New Zealand Wars. This time next year will be the 150th anniversary of the Matawhero Massacre (10 November).

Our regular historian, Grant Morris believes this will l be a more difficult national discussion than the ones around Rangiaowhia and Parihaka and explains why.
