Waitangi: Jacinda Ardern visit makes history

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 5 February 2018

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will be formally welcomed at Waitangi on Monday morning, along with a Parliamentary delegation made up of MPs from Labour, National, New Zealand First and the Greens. Jacinda Ardern will speak from the porch of the Whare Rūnanga during the formal welcome - a first for a female prime minister. 

Ms Ardern is half-way through her extended visit to Waitangi, the longest any prime minister has spent there. 

She joins Mihingarangi Forbes to discuss her experience and plans for her government's relationship with Māori.
