Kōhanga reo march

Kōhanga reo march

Supporters of Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust march down The Terrace in Wellington in 2011. The trust was set up to oversee kōhanga reo (Māori-language preschools) around the country. This march was in support of the trust's claim to the Waitangi Tribunal about what it saw as inappropriate interference by the Ministry of Education.
