Waipureku (Clive) Waitangi Commemoration 2021

February 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Waipureku (Clive) Waitangi Commemoration 2021
The Waipureku Waitangi Trust invites the people of Hawke’s Bay to the
commemoration of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840 by
three Ngati Kahungunu chiefs at Waipureku (Clive).
Waipureku, meaning ’the meeting of waters’, was a lagoon that joined
the Ngaruroro and Tukituki rivers.
The commemoration begins at 7.45am at Ātea-a-rangi (Waitangi Park, Awatoto) with karakia to start a Hikoi (walk of unity) along the Ngaruroro riverbank to Farndon Park and welcomed with a Haka
Pōwhiri at 8.30am by local Manawhenua.
Following the powhiri, there will be a public address by local politicians,
re-enactment of the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, talks by local historian Pat Parsons and a free Te Tiriti workshop.
Nau mai, haere mai, all welcome!
