Where do I fit in Waitangi day?

7/02/2008

Yesterday was Waitangi day, glands New Zealand’s national day. It commemorates the treaty that ‘created modern New Zealand’. Where do I fit in this day as a non-Maori, hospital non-European person? Considering the demographic shifts, it is hard for me to see a bicultural commemoration is embracing a more modern multicultural country. So, where is the day for celebrating ‘modern-modern New Zealand’?
