Te Whanau o Hamiora Mangakahia and Meri Te Tai Mangakahia went on a hikoi to Papawai in the Wairarapa in September 2012 to celebrate & honour our Tupuna @ a 115 year celebration of Kotahitanga. Both Hamiora and Meri were honoured for their political involvement and acheivements.
It was an amazing experience which was enjoyed by all.
