Tarawera Memorial Day 10 June 2014

Despite the inclement weather, there was a very good turnout of Tuhourangi iwi members to the Karakia at the Hinemihi site, the first event on the Tarawera Memorial Day timetable.  This response from the iwi continued throughout the day with all who were able to stay thoroughly enjoying the morning's programme including:

- Acknowledgement of loved ones who have passed on

- TTA update provided by Chairman, Alan Skipwith

- TARIT presentation by Tamara Mutu, Legal Analyst

- Te Whare Korero o Tuhourangi, viewing of Episode 1 of Documentary series

The day concluded with continued conversations over lunch.

He tino mihi ki a Rangitihi Pene, te kaiwhakahaere mo tenei ra tino whakahirahira ki te iwi.

Karakia being led by kaumatua, Mauriora Kingi.

Kaumatua, Anaru Rangiheuea, addressing those who braved the conditions.

Remembering those who have passed on

Just some of the iwi who took advantage of the full morning of presentations
