For wire worry week we focus on cultural appropriation. The haka party incident in 1979 saw conflict come to a head with protestors confronting University of Auckland engineering students over their practice of donning grass skirts, brown face and performing fake Haka as part of capping day celebrations. The confrontation is seen as a pinnacle moment of activism causing change in our country's history but is a story not often told from the activists experience. Hone Harawira was part of the protest that day, Jenn spoke to him on the incident, what lead to it and the challenges New Zealand still faces today.
