Loading the player...

Kipa Roera, welcomes the troops home on behalf of Ngāti Raukawa. His kōrero is supported by Ngāti Pōneke Young Māori Club, lead by Pirihia Heketa, M.B.E.

Roera was steeped in the traditions of his Ngāti Raukawa iwi and was very familiar with their histories and stories. He is described as a fiery person showing a fierce pride and competency in oratory as demonstrated in his delivery.
