Do you remember the Foreshore and Seabed hīkoi in 2004?

The country was divided on the issue, as were the members in Government.

A sore spot in our nation’s history, the proposal of the Foreshore and Seabed Act led to one of the largest protest hīkoi of our time. We've all heard of it but do you actually know what went on? Maybe this explainer will help.

This is part of our reo Māori series, Ohinga, created by Mahi Tahi Media, with funding from Te Māngai Pāho.

Stay tuned for a new episode every week.
