Special guest...Tigilau Ness

This term Room 25 and the rest of Kauri team have been learning about the 1970's and the dawn raids. We have been reading the Dawn Raid novel written by Pauline (Vaeluaga) Smith. 

Room 25 invited Tigilau Ness (the father of Che Fu...Yes Che Fu!), also a character in the novel, to come and share his story and experience of the 1970's and the dawn raids.

He did some songs with us too!

Tigilau is a member of the Polynesian Panthers. The Polynesian Panthers help out in the community. They stand up for what they believe in and help others to do the same.
