Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

New Zealanders have quietly acknowledged an anniversary this week: Moehanga Day, or the day Māori "discovered" Britain.

In a tongue-in-cheek nod to their former colonial power, some Kiwis have began an annual remembrance of the first trip by a Māori to London.

That man was Moehanga of Northland's Ngāpuhi tribe, who reached Britain in 1806, before New Zealand officially became a British colony in 1840.
