PSA: New Zealand Is Getting A New Public Holiday!!!!!

On Friday 19th August, Deputy Prime Minister Bill English announced that a public holiday will be created to commemorate the 1800s Land Wars. He confirmed this at the return of the Rangiriri battle site to Māori at Turangawaewae. The site was returned at the 10th anniversary of King Tuheitia’s reign. “One of the things they are asking to consider is it does not clash with any particular battle site commemorations, so that it can be a clean and stand alone date and then people can have their commemorations on their dates free and clear of any hinderances,” King Tuheitia’s spokesman, Rahui Papa was quoted by Fairfax Media.

The date has not yet been confirmed. However, Papa said that the months of June, September and October seem to be “fairly clear”.
