Absolutely magnificent: Rawiri Waititi Maiden Statement. In a very powerful speech, he insisted that Te Tiriti o Waitangi must be honoured, colonialism must end. He spoke of his ancestor who was wrongly hanged. Waititi removed his tie (noose) and replaced it with a tāonga. 🙌🏼

Rawiri Waititi replaces his tie with a Māori cultural item.
