The 1970s was a period of great social and political upheaval around the world, including the push for indigenous equality and land rights. The Maori protest movement was the result of a culmination of grievances dating back to the signing of the treaty of Waitangi in 1840. This documentary style program explores the reasons for the 1970s Maori protest movement, the 1975 Hikoi protest march, the Occupation of Bastion Point in 1977, and how Aotearoa-New Zealand has changed since the protests. Interviews with New Zealand historians Claudia Orange, Dr Benjamin Pittman and Mark Derby provide a great overview of the key protests and their enduring significance.
