Occupying Pākaitore (Moutoa Gardens)

From February to May 1995 Whanganui Māori occupied Pākaitore (Moutoa Gardens) in Whanganui city to protest about historical grievances. Young and old alike saw the occupation as a way to restore the mana (authority) of the Whanganui people. An agreement was later signed between iwi and local and national government over co-management of the site.
