Fateful choices

Wednesday 6 June 12pm to 1pm Free

From a colonial world to a Māori world - a HeritageTalk with Cushla Randle.

Maori carving
At the beginning of the land wars, landowner Roger Hill and his brother Henry, fought in the local Mauku Volunteers. Roger later became the first Headmaster of the Native School at Omaio, north of Opotiki, and thus entered into a different struggle altogether.

Join Cushla Randle for a look at two very different worlds at this compelling time in New Zealand's history.
