1975 MĀORI LAND MARCH: In 1975, about 5,000 marchers, led by Whina Cooper, arrived at Parliament and presented a petition signed by 60,000 people to Prime Minister Bill Rowling. The primary aim of the hīkoi (march) was to call for an end to the alienation (sale) of Māori land. Here is a poem by Hone Tuwhare, New Zealand’s most distinguished Maori poet writing in English, about this historic event.
