Join historian and writer Andrew Moffat for a presentation tracing the history of the New Zealand Wars memorial on Pūkākā/Marsland Hill. This story of how the community forged, celebrated and attacked the monument over the years brings us face to face with a raw, conflicted history in a province still wrestling with its past today.
