Welcome to our new webseries, Kaupapa on the Couch!

Leonie Hayden presents Kaupapa On The Couch, a six-part webseries looking at issues in te ao Māori that aren’t as well known or understood as they should be.

This month: the Māori seats. What are they for and who cares about them anyway?

Made with the support of NZ On Air.
