“Waitangi Day is not just a holiday, it is a day of honesty and clarity about where we stand in Aotearoa, New Zealand.” – Teanau

“Te Tino Rangatiratanga o o ratou te whenua, o ratou kainga, me o ratou taonga katoa.

The government isn’t going to honour the treaty, so we’ve got to take the power back and honour the treaty, so we’ve got to take the power back and honour it ourselves.” – Nick Henry

The Governor General’s secretary came out and faced the crowd, and actively debated with several members of the crowd.
