These are the people who take us back to mankind’s roots. The hunters and gatherers who bring home the trout. Or the bacon. Without them we’d probably be, well…vegan.
They deserve our support, gifts, and thoughts while they’re out there battling the elements, soaked by salt spray or creeping through rain-drenched bracken and we’re warm and toasty in our own comfortable lounges watching that on the screen or playing some VR game instead (depending on individual demographics).
There’s not much more Kiwi than slinging a wild pig in the back of the ute and heading into town to catch up with mates after having put together a feed for them of eels, kina and paua. So, well played all of you.
