Te Taumata acknowledges Anzac Day

Te Taumata acknowledges Anzac Day

E kore rātou e kaumātuatia

Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue nei

E kore hoki rātou e ngoikore

Ahakoa pehea i ngā āhuatanga o te wā

I te hekenga atu o te rā

Tae noa ki te arangamai i te ata

Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou

Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou

Monday marks the 107th anniversary of the Anzac landing at Gallipoli.

More than 2200 Māori served in the Pioneer Battalion during WWI, with 50 killed during the Gallipoli campaign alone.

By the end of WWII, nearly 16,000 Māori had enlisted for service and the 28th Māori Battalion had become one of the most celebrated and decorated units in the New Zealand forces.

Over the course of the two world wars, nearly 1000 Māori soldiers lost their lives, with thousands more injured or reported missing.

Te Taumata joins the rest of New Zealand and Australia this Anzac Day in acknowledging the bravery and sacrifice of our ancestors, as well as those who have served to protect us ever since.

We are grateful COVID restrictions have eased, allowing people to come together to pay our respects at public commemorations around the motu.

On this day, and every day, we will remember them.
