A big night last night for the South Auckland Māori Wardens at the Manukau Events Centre ... not trouble, but a chance to celebrate their achievements.

Wardens chair Thomas Henry says wardens are the unsung heroes of Tāmaki ki te tonga, working to keep order and help the community wherever it can.

As well as giving tohu for long service and acknowledging several well-respected wardens who have died in recent years, 27 wardens were given their unique warrant to operate, something that hasn’t happened for several years.

"That just gives the wardens the right to go into areas where our Māori people might be congregating, looking after the kaupapa around the marae or in hotels where our people are drinking and they might get a bit intoxicated so the Māori wardens are there to make sure they don't get into their vehicles, and we have got a van to take them home," Mr Henry says.
