Chatham Islanders

Rēkohu / Chatham Island / Wharekauri. Three peoples one land. The Chatham Island archipelago is 45 minutes ahead and 800 kilometres east of Aotearoa, New Zealand. The first place in the world to see the sun. The land and the sea and the people are ruggedly beautiful. The islands history is rich, it’s colourful, and it’s dark.
