Tame Iti is an activist known to all Maoris of New Zealand. He joined the Maori Nationalists during the protest movements in the 1970s. He is also an artist who gives performances combining dance and theater. In 2005, during a traditional festival, he fired a gun into a New Zealand flag and charges were made against him. On October 15, 2007, he was arrested with 16 other people from his village during a police antiterrorist raid. Released, he became in spite of himself the hero of the Maori cause.
