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.
