1975 Māori land march

1975 Māori land march

From the late 1960s some Māori challenged the single definition of the New Zealander, arguing for a strengthening of Māori language and culture. The idea of biculturalism – one nation but two peoples – emerged. The 1975 Māori land march was an important moment in this reassertion of Māori identity. These marchers are crossing Auckland harbour bridge during their 640-kilometre walk south from Te Hāpua to the capital.
