Waitangi Day was commemorated in Dunedin/Otepoti by way of a community concert. Photos below.
This family friendly event encourages all who attend, both Maori and non-Maori alike, to remember their roots.
It was a song (waiata) filled afternoon and great hospitality given freely to everyone who attended. I had the privilege to play a few songs also.
People were also encouraged to look at the information on hand to learn more about the Treaty of Waitangi.
A huge thank you to all the organisers of this great event.

This is the fourth year of the South Dunedin Street Festival and, despite ferocious winds, thousands of people enjoyed the celebration of all that is South Dunedin.
Here are a few photos, but if you would like to see more there are many more photos on my Flickr page.
