Attending the hearing in person


  • Please keep in mind that the courtroom has limited seating, and accommodating large groups can be challenging. To ensure the comfort of our kaumātua, we kindly ask whānau to prioritise their seating needs.
  • For those unable to find a seat within the courtroom, we have arranged a private room with a livestream, exclusively reserved for whānau. This way, you can still be part of the proceedings and show your support for the kaupapa.
  • Every morning at 9.30am, we’ll be gathering outside the courtroom for karakia and waiata – we extend a warm invitation to all whānau to join us.
