Ngā Tamatoa commemorates 50 with 50
The 50th anniversary of Ngā Tamatoa will reunite a total of 50 living members at an event being held in Tauranga Moana this weekend.
Hosted by local iwi, the reunion will honour the movement of Māori youth who played an important role in revitalising the Māori language.
A presentation acknowledging their contributions to te ao Māori takes place at the Baycourt Addison Theatre in Tauranga tomorrow from 9.30 am.
Later that afternoon, Ngā Tamatoa members will share their personal stories at a series of panel discussions being held at the local campus of the University of Waikato.
