The Deaf Association of New Zealand opened its new offices on Great North Road, Avondale, Auckland in November 1999. Te Karere was there to capture this important occasion, with patron Judy Bailey cutting the ribbon with Tony Walton (President), after a powhiri lead by Deaf students from Kelston Deaf Education Centre. The Deaf community then were able to have a walk around the newly refurbished building.

Patrick Thompson talks about the importance of Māori Deaf having access to tikanga Māori.
