The final act of our Titans Of Aotearoa trailer. Released on 11th Nov, the 100-year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice agreement that officially ended WW1. Aotearoa/NZ's small country sent a significant contribution to this war. It included a unique battalion of Māori and Pacifica soldiers called the Native/Māori contingent. We shall not forget them.
