When composer Anania Amohau (Te Arawa) taught soldiers at Trentham Military Camp 'March to Victory' in 1940 they quickly took to the rhythm. 

It became their marching song.

Rongo Toa is a series by Creative Nātives and Hāni Dread commemorating and celebrating the waiata of the 28th Māori Battalion this Anzac Day.

Heeni Brown (Te Arawa, Te Aupōuri) and Te Wehi Preston (Mataatua, Te Arawa) uncover the stories behind the songs that have become part of our history.
