Maoris made ‘Honorary Celts’

From The Daily Post in Wales:

The New Zealand Maoris are to be recognised as “honorary Celts” in the run-up to the big Wales v All Blacks rugby international next month. Gorsedd of Bards officials will make a presentation to a representative of the Maori nation at the Senedd in Cardiff tomorrow. (The Senedd is the Welsh Assembly, G.) Welsh sculptor David Petersen has created (a) stainless steel Horn of Plenty to mark the occasion. It will be presented to a member of the Ngati Ranana London Maori Club. Wales take on the All Blacks on November 7.
