Moana Callaghan

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:34 pm on 7 December 2014

Moana Callaghan and her whānau travelled from Maraenui to attend the three day commemorations at Te Poho o Rawiri pā, Gisborne as their father Wira Callaghan was a soldier in C Company of the 28th Māori Battalion. Following the powhiri at the pā on the Friday, Maraea Rakuraku joins her on the mahau (porch) of the whare tipuna as she reminisces about her fathers service and his post war life when he returned home.
