for Waitangi Day event
The bringing together of all cultures to work in harmony is what Waitangi Day in Rotorua is about.
But Waiariki MP Rawiri Waititi reminded those who attended the special gathering at Ōhinemutu, it shouldn’t just happen on February 6.
For the more than 5000 people who poured through Ōhinemutu Village for the Waitangi Day celebration in Rotorua - Mō te Aroha o te Iwi, For the Love of the People - they got to experience the warmth of not only Māori culture but every culture that makes Rotorua special.
There was food, demonstrations, interactive displays and children’s activities dotted around a main stage and through to Te Papaiouru Marae. On the main stage performers showed off what makes their culture special.
