Ministers, MPs and guests celebrate the launch of Heke Tangata

A host of government ministers, MPs, dignitaries and leaders in the Māori and political world were in attendance for this morning's launch of Heke Tangata: Māori in Markets and Cities at Parliament, Wellington.

Hosting by the Hon. Willie Jackson, the launch showcased not only this work but distinguished author Brian Easton's long-standing commitment to front the facts about Māori disadvantage and achievement. 

A photo gallery of the breakfast launch follows; for more on the book, see coverage in the National Business Review and the Oratia website.
