In 1881 Parihaka was the setting for non-violent resistance to Pākehā colonisation, by Māori under the leadership of Te Whiti-o-Rongomai and Tohu Kākahi. From 2006 it was the site of an annual peace festival – a tribute to those earlier days – which brought together musicians and activists, locals and visitors. This clip shows the festival in January 2009.
