Waitangi Day Commemoration in Kawerau

ORGANISERS of the Waitangi Day Commemoration in Kawerau last Tuesday say it was extremely successful, attracting people from all over the region.

Te Wananga o Aotearoa led the day in collaboration with the Tuwharetoa ki Kawerau Health, Education and Social Services and the Kawerau District Council.

Event co-ordinator Vanessa Skipper said they were very pleased with the interest within the community surrounding Waitangi Day and the Treaty of Waitangi.

The whanau-focused event featured live entertainment, local food stalls, ta moko face painting, as well as an impressive waka tangata (canoe for carrying people) as a visual aid to mark the day.
