Our 1st Annual Migrant Powhiri was an amazing success:
Hundreds of migrants gathered at the Whareroa Marae to officially welcome migrants to the Bay of Plenty . This ceremony ushers in a new era of inclusion. Race Relations commissioner Meng Foon attended this event which was lauded as the first powhiri of its' kind in Aotearoa.
The aspect of the tangata whenua welcoming the migrants to this land was the kaupapa of this event. Many
of the migrants present were deeply touched by this experience as it was one of a kind.
