Description

Leigh McLachlan asks whether only allowing men to speak on the Marae is sexism or upholding ancestral teachings?

In most tribes, it's the man's job to speak on the marae during a formal Maori powhiri, while the women lead the karanga or welcome call.

Radio New Zealand's Te Manu Korihi reporter, Leigh McLachlan, speaks to iwi representatives, politicians and young Maori wahine about their rights on the marae today.
