Native Affairs – Saddle Up

By Iulia Leilua

The rodeo season has just finished but the same can't be said for the debate over animal safety at rodeo events. Two weeks ago a petition signed by 63,000 Kiwis was presented to Parliament calling for rodeos to be banned.

Iulia Leilua went to the Waimarino Rodeo to canvas the views of Māori cowboys about the ban.
