New MP does the colonial walk
New Māori Party list MP Debbie Ngarewa says her parliamentary accommodation includes a daily walk of infamy.
She and Rawiri Waititi have been temporarily put in a distant part of the parliamentary complex referred to as Hogwarts, reached through a corridor lined with portraits for former colonial leaders.
"Every morning we go in and I pass Governor Grey, Seddon, Wakefield, interesting gentlemen who were part of the near annihilation, rape and pillaging of our people in Aotearoa, especially the ones who were taken down from Parihaka to Dunedin, so it is a really interesting space, really ririki," she says.
