Such a beautiful and evocative tune, magnificent musical and visual imagery of our beautiful land and our people. Emma Paki thank you for the gift of this wonderful song you have given the world. Beautiful Koauau at the end. Haunting.

Cool song, great song really. Thought about it when they advertised the new album Aotearoa and wondered why this was not on it.

This is a very powerful piece of film and music that hasn't lost any of its strength of message over the years. This song means something and conveys such a mood and feeling. I absolutely love it and always have. I would really like to know the words. Well done Emma. This song inspired me to see you wherever you played, including at Parihaka. Arohanui, Hilary.

Loved this vid the first time I saw it, and the song.
I remember it being high on the so called charts back in those days.
Those were days of protest, and Emma's song was one of the best protest songs. But not everyone got the message. I did, and still do. Her song but perhaps not the vid, is still relevant to today.
System Virtue - that says it all.
Come back Emma and do your song again, and maybe the rest of us will understand the next time around.
