Tirohia Bridger played Cowboys and Indians out of Pakipaki in 1950s


In April this year Tirohia Bridger talked to Mary O'Neill. Mrs. Bridger works at the Radio Kahungunu - Irirangi o Ngati Kahngunu in Hastings.
Tirohia did you like to play with dolls in your childhood?
"My doll was Betty, and I am not sure what my sister dolly was, but they were just like wooden sticks."
Did you play with other toys?
"We are country people and we would ride horses and sort of roam around. There were neighbours kids and we used to play Cowboys and Indians and we used to make our own bows and arrows."
