New Zealand’s longest river is off limits during Level 3 for spiritual healing, creating mixed reactions from those who’ve waited weeks to get back on the water.
Fishers, rowers and kayakers aching to get back on the Waikato River after being locked inside are being asked to wait after the kīngitanga placed a rāhui on it in response to Covid-19, prohibiting food gathering and recreational activities. A rāhui was also placed on the Waipā River.
Spiritual healing for a river. Did a Taniwha shit in it?
