This is our home and it is represented by our marae. This area: our mountain, our stream, and our training area. And the tying together of that Māori warrior culture and the British traditions of the regiments and discipline is really important … That’s critical to us being world class. This here is a part of our mana.
– New Zealand Army chief, Major General Dave Gawn
