Promoting culture and heritage

The Ministry for Culture and Heritage provides advice and assistance to the New Zealand government on culture and heritage matters and undertakes activities that support and promote the country’s history and heritage. These included, in 2004, the repatriation of an unknown New Zealand soldier from a First World War cemetery in France. Here the Unknown Warrior is interred at the National War Memorial in Wellington on 11 November 2004.
