Powhiri – Maori’s responsibility to migrants
The kamatua used his address at the powhiri ceremony held at Orongomai Marae in Upper Hutt to remind the audience that Aotearoa has opened its arms to welcome migrants to the country for many years. He reiterated the five aspects of the Treaty of Waitangi with special emphasis on the preamble “living in peace with justice for all,” which connects to the theme of Safety for the weekend long activities at the 26th Annual General Meeting of Multicultural New Zealand.
