Anniversary of the invasion of Parihaka.

On 5 November 1881, over 1500 colonial troops and their Māori allies invaded the village of Parihaka near the Taranaki coast. Many people were expelled, buildings destroyed, and rangatira Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kākahi were jailed.

Dr Rachel Buchanan in conversation with Hon Mahara Okeroa.

Join Taranaki kaumātua and Treaty negotiator Hon Mahara Okeroa (Taranaki, Te Ātiawa) and Dr Rachel Buchanan (Taranaki, Te Ātiawa), author of BWB Text Ko Taranaki Te Maunga, at the National Library for the anniversary of te pāhuatanga, the invasion of Parihaka.

Mahara Okeroa grew up at Parihaka and his kuia, Te Ngoungou, was one of te hunga ririki children who met the invading police and soldiers in 1881.

Rachel and Mahara will discuss their own connection to Taranaki and the lasting impact of confiscation, sharing a kōrero on the apologies and settlements that have taken place since the invasion.

This event will be chaired by Dr Maria Bargh (Te Arawa and Ngati Awa), Head of School, Te Kawa a Māui, Victoria University.

Refreshments will be served after the event.

This event is part of the BWB Winter Series. BWB gratefully acknowledges the support of Creative New Zealand.
