Special Edition Stamp Issue Marks 150 Years Of Kingitanga

A special edition stamp issue marking the 150th anniversary of the Kingitanga Movement will be unveiled at Turangawaewae marae on Thursday 1 May by King Tuheitia, the Maori King.

The Kingitanga emerged from a movement by a number of Maori tribes in the 1850s to establish a symbolic hereditary kingship similar in status to the British monarch. The ceremony will mark the occasion when Potatau Te Wherowhero agreed to become the first Maori King. His coronation was held in Ngaruawahia in June that year.

The special issue Kingitanga stamps will be launched by King Tuheitia at Turangawaewae marae at the conclusion of a pohiri for the NZ Post Group lead by the Rt. Hon James B Bolger, ONZ, Chairman and Chief Executive John Allen, to be held at 3.30pm Thursday 1 May 2008.



Hei te Tâite, 1 o Mei, ka hurahia e Kingi Tuheitia, te Kingi Mâori, tçtahi putanga pane Kuini motuhake, ki Tûrangawaewae Marae, e whakanui ana i te huritau 150 tau o te Kingitanga.

I tipu mai te Kingitanga i tçtahi kaupapa whakahaere a çtahi iwi Mâori i ngâ tau o Tahi Mano Waru Rau Rima Te Kau, ki te whakatû i tçtahi Kingitanga whaitohu tuku iho, e âhua ôrite ana ki te Kingitanga o Ingarangi.

Is the Vermont senator the party’s best hope of motivating and leading an inspirational movement to defeat Donald Trump in November, or would he be the easiest opponent of them all for Trump to stigmatise, isolate and defeat?
