Ngati Poroutanga

ANZAC Day has become an annual tradition for many Ngati Porou whanau - a time to remember the sacrifices made by our tupuna, as well as honour the contribution of our returned service men and women. 

C Company Veteran, Nolan Raihania, and his mokopuna tuarua, Karauna Waititi ( pictured Below greeting each other at C Company House in Gisborne) were amongst the early morning crowds who attended services held up and down the Tairawhiti. This year’s commemorations were especially more poignant, as April the 25th also marked the centenary of the fateful day when Australian and New Zealand troops made land fall on the Gallipoli peninsula.

Below are selected images from ANZAC Day events held at C Company House, Te Poho o Rawiri marae and Uawa.
