Kotahitanga - Unity
I was in Whangarei last week for a job interview and in the parking lot where I parked my car I spotted this mural. Named "Kotahitanga" meaning "unity" in Maori it's been painted by local artist Earnest Bradley and was part of the 2019 Street Prints Manaia Trail - this one is in John Street.
I like it because it symbolizes what NZ needs to become - there is always going to be racism and division no matter where you go but many people are still stuck on the ramifications of the first settlers colonizing the land and to a degree I can understand the frustration but we can't go back in time and change anything, we can only go forward and try to get along with each other. Thoughts?
Linking up with Mural Monday, Our World Tuesday and My corner of the world.
