On 13 October 1975, a historic land march reached the grounds of Parliament in Wellington and its elderly, articulate leader became Te Whaea o te Motu (Mother of the Nation).  WHINA tells Dame Whina Cooper’s life story, from her achievements as a leader in her Māori electorate to the famous hikoi (march) that made Māori land rights a key national issue. Dame Whina Cooper was a beloved Māori matriarch who worked tirelessly to improve the rights of her people, especially women. Flawed yet resilient, WHINA tells the story of a woman formed by tradition, compelled by innovation, and guided by an instinct for equality and justice whose legacy as the Te Whaea o te Motu (Mother of the Nation) was an inspiration to an entire country.
