Kiwis in L.A.
Treaty of Waitangi Presentation
Official Residence NZ Consulate-General, Brentwood, Los Angeles
Wednesday 12th July 2023.
By invitation only.
Purakau Productions will present a lecture based on the decisions and actions of influential Ngapuhi Rangatira (chief), Moka Te Kaingamata regarding the Treaty of Waitangi (and other documents).
History has previously claimed he was a signatory to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, but recent research by Maori historian Brent Kerehona Pukepuke-Ahitapu suggests that not only did Moka fail to sign this document, but that he refused to do so on principle - Aotearoa New Zealand's first activist.
