|"I knew every single person in that school" : country life in the 1950s|
Talks about Taniwha school, which was predominantly Maori. Details growing up with the Maoris.
"At one stage there was a tremendous storm and the power was off for ... something like three days and we had a herd of cows to be milked and the
Maoris, a collection of them from down on the Marae came up and they helped
us milk all these cows for every milking twice a day by hand and if it hadn't a been for them I don't know just quite what would have happened"
Says they had draught horses no tractors.
