of three talented descendants
An East Coast iwi has good reason to celebrate as some very successful and young descendants returned home.
Between the three of them, they have won an Emmy, a Rugby World Cup and a Silver Scroll.
They were proudly welcomed home by whānau at the Ōtuwhare Marae in Ōmaio, a remote spot on the East Coast.
The three Apanui stars Tweedie Waititi, Ruahei Demant and Rob Ruha were met with a special welcome as they returned to their marae of Ōtuwhare with special taonga in tow.
