On his taxpayer-funded junket to South Africa for Nelson Mandela's funeral, Maori Party M.P., Hone Harawira, aalso known as John Hadfield), was awarded yet a third name.
Hone was invited to address a major gathering of the indigenous peoples of the African continent. The invitation was extended due to his recent examples of how to inflame the racial situation in New Zealand.
Hone spoke for almost an hour, talking at length about social justice, about his representation of NZ’s anti-apartheid movement, about being the living incarnation of both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. and Parliament’s only standard-bearer for the poor and downtrodden, about the money he makes off his popular flag design, and about how he has continued his racist mother's quest for unearned privilege and her doomed-to-fail rabid ideas to divide and conquer using race.
At the conclusion of his speech, the tribes presented Hone with a plaque inscribed with his new South African indigenous people's name - "Walking Eagle." The proud Hone then departed with his entourage, waving to the crowd as he left.
A news reporter later asked the local leaders of the indigenous peoples of South Africa how they came to select the new name given to Hone.
They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.
