National leader Judth Collins has backed calls on a referendum for calling New Zealand Aotearoa. This comes after MP Stuart Smith posted a column on Tuesday saying New Zealanders should be consulted on the use of it by Government. On the Wire this Wednesday, Fances Wright spoke to Professor Pare Keiha from AUT about the the significance of calling New Zealand Aotearoa, and his hope for the future of the word as a natural and cultural identifier.
