Hāngī at the Manukau City Council staff picnic, 1965

The hāngī is uncovered at the Manukau City Council staff picnic in December 1965. Since the 19th century community picnics provided opportunities for Māori and Pākehā to socialise together. On occasions such as this, Pākehā became familiar with such aspects of Māori life as the hāngī.
