Haka and Guitars

During the Pacific’s most bloody Civil War, the New Zealand Army found a way to achieve peace without guns and violence. Through the powerful influence of women and multiculturalism 'Haka and Guitars' shows the world there is a way to achieve peace in our time. Fiona Cassidy (NgatiKuri, Te Aupouri, Te Rarawa) – a former Major in the New Zealand Army – returns to Bougainville to reflect on ‘Operation Belisi’, modern history’s most successful peacekeeping mission.
