WAITANGI 1966

Each year the ceremonies observed on the Waitangi Treaty Grounds seem to attract more people. Mostly they come from the Taitokerau district but a surprising number are visitors from other parts of the country. This year there was a noticeable increase in the number of young people present.

For the first time the occasion was marked with an inter-denominational church service. It was conducted by the Rev. Rua Rakena, assistant superintendent of the Methodist Church's Home and Maori Mission School Prayers were read by Father T. Wanders of Panguru, and the Bishop of Aotearoa, the Rt. Rev. W. N. Panapa.
