Saturday 21 October, 2pm Bastion Point - Day 507 Leader, activist and Labour MP, Joe Hawke introduces a film by Merata Mita that documents the occupation of Bastion Point in the struggle for Maori land rights. The protest began in 1977 when the government proposed subdividing Maori land in the centre of Auckland. Ngati Whatua people occupied the land, built living areas and planted crops. The film concentrates on the 507th day of occupation when protesters were forcibly removed. Screening courtesy of The New Zealand Film Archive.

Sunday 22 October, 3pm 'An Ornament for the Päkehä': The Parihaka Triptych A signpost in the artist's metaphorical journey and a landmark in New Zealand painting, Colin McCahon's sublime Parihaka Triptych belongs with a remarkable group of paintings inspired by Mäori messianic movements of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Eminent art historian, curator and writer Jonathan Mane-Wheoki will discuss the genesis of this 'deeply respectful, pioneeringly bicultural' work. With the inscription 'I Te Whiti to people throughout the world and to the people of Parihaka', McCahon depicted a 'regional proponent of passive resistance' as an international figure.

....And remember:

Saturday 11 November, 1-5pm Supporting the Kaupapa Concert for Parihaka, Civic Square Sounds of the conscious will echo - from reggae rhythms to Hip-Hop beats some of Aotearoa's finest come together inspired by the story of Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Käkahi, with rhymes and song. Music is power and unity is strength. Featuring David Grace & Whanau, Emma Paki, Wai 100%, Dallas Tamaira, Toni Huata, Voodoo Chile, Te Kupu, Trinity Roots. Concert MC'd by Paora Ropata.
