An Ihumātao kuia’s heartfelt plea to Jacinda Adern

The ‘mamae’, the pain passed down the generations from land theft & genocide. See yesterday’s post on the shady and corrupt histories you were not privy to in your childhood education. Our Crown all complicit. You were taught, like me, that those wars were ‘Māori’ Wars’. Like the similar ‘Indian Wars’. And this rape & pillage is still going on today by the same perpetrators. And small wonder the option to teach about the land wars in NZ schools was recently denied. Too much has been hidden. Too much at stake. It’s time the truth of these histories came out. Thanks to this dear kuia for speaking out, and to the very long line of people historically whose voices have fallen on deaf ears. The video below is from the #ProtectIhumatao kaitiaki Youtube channel.
