Te Tiriti o Waitangi Playlist

A virtual Waitangi Day 2022

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen the cancellation of the usual Waitangi Day commemorative events for 2022, with official proceedings now to be delivered virtually on television channel Three and the iwi radio network.

Broadcast delivery of Waitangi Day commemorations have been done for many years, and Media Services’ Te Tiriti o Waitangi playlist contains a range of content. From Norman Kirk’s 1974 speech declaring Waitangi Day a national holiday, through to dramatisations, documentaries, debates, and news coverage of past events.

Supplement this year’s virtual Waitangi Day with a look back at how the day has been presented.
