Hon Te Ururoa Flavell - Minister for Maori Development 31 October 2016 - Media Statement Māori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell has welcomed a date set by iwi to hold a national day to commemorate the New Zealand Land Wars. Iwi representatives throughout the country met recently to decide on the date for the nation to remember the 19th century war, following a call from Mr Flavell in June for them to work with the Crown and decide the date. Raa Maumahara National Day of Commemoration will be held October 28 each year, with the first inaugural event starting in 2017. “I’m looking forward to the commemoration because it will give our nation the opportunity to learn a part of our history that has been silent for too long,” Mr Flavell said. "Raa Maumahara is a sign of our maturity as a nation that we know our history – good and bad. And I look forward to working with iwi to further support this initiative.”
