New Zealand: Waitangi Day 2009, Official Celebrations 2

The warriors assemble to meet the dignitaries from the Waka. The official party led by the Governor General of New Zealand and the Mayor of Auckland land on Okahu Bay.
This meeting is very sacred and traditional. We were told to stand aside, the warriors could be in a trance, and we don't want to be in their war path and get hurt by their weapons.
