Dame Whina Cooper and her moko.... her name is synonymous with the Maori Land March of 1975. At 80 years of age Dame Whina led her march from Te Hapua in the Far North to parliament in Wellington to dramatise Maori determination to retain their land and culture and to galvanise Maori and Pakeha support.
