Te Hokinga Mai o Te Rua Tekau mā Waru

This exhibition hightlights the speeches, supporting waiata and haka delivered to soldiers of the celebrated 28th Māori Battalion as they arrived in Wellington in January 1946. This is the second of four exhibitions from Ngā Taonga Kōrero, the archive of RNZ’s Māori radio programmes and a rare opportunity to connect with important voices from our past.

The Camera in the Crowd

The companion exhibition to Dr Chris Pugsley's Book The Camera in the Crowd: Filming New Zealand in Peace and War, 1895-1920.
