Why Ardern’s Maori cloak, worn to meet the Queen, delighted New Zealand, by the BBC.

When New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern wore a traditional Maori cloak to meet the Queen, it had quite a few people scratching their heads – and most New Zealanders glowing with pride.

It’s a korowai, a garment woven with feathers and steeped in history, tradition and cultural significance.

Worn by Maori on special occasions, it surprised some when it turned up in London at the Commonwealth Summit.

But it’s not that unusual. The Queen also wears one whenever she visits New Zealand.

Massive virtue signalling. It doesn’t get more tribal than this.

But which tribes are good, and which are bad, is only allowed to be decided by the PC Left of course.
