The theme for the Wellington International Pride Parade 2021 is Papatūānuku (Mother Earth)
“Whatungarognaro te tangata, toitū te whenua” (As humanity disappears from sight the land
remains). This whakataukī demonstrates the holistic value of the Māori, and the utmost respect they
have for Papatūānuku the mother of the earth. Be kind, be strong Aotearoa, firmly plant the seeds of
growth in the Earth and let nature be your guiding light. Celebrate a uniquely Wellington experience,
and as a Nation in solidarity unite.
