In this full-length Heartland episode, Gary McCormick travels to the Hokianga in Northland, where he attends the annual rowing regatta in the town of Horeke. Locals compete in ironman (swimming, running and... woodchopping), before McCormick delves into the region’s logging past and sees local bone carvers at work. He also visits the Motuti Marae, then drives on to Panguru where he interviews local resident and Māori land march leader Dame Whina Cooper. The programme (gently) reflects on Māori and Pākehā race relations in the area.

It's not really a big feature round here of who's Māori and who's Pākehā really because practically everyone is both, or at least feels that way.
– Local resident Dick Holdaway, on the ratio of Māori to Pākehā in Hokianga
