Boil-up at the marae, 2004

The boil-up – a large pot of green and root vegetables and meat such as pork bones, boiled together – is a popular and practical way of feeding large numbers of people. This boil-up is being prepared at Raukawa Marae, Ōtaki, for marchers on the 2004 hīkoi (march) to Parliament, a protest at the foreshore and seabed legislation.
