A large hīkoi was organised during the 2004 Foreshore and seabed controversy in opposition to the nationalisation of New Zealand's foreshore and seabed along the coastline. For maximum visibility, the marchers travelled on foot through cities and towns and in motor vehicles in rural areas.
A hīkoi with between 500 and 700 participants took place in Auckland on 25 May 2009, following the National government's indication that it would not heed a Royal Commission recommendation that the proposed council for the Auckland supercity include dedicated Maori seats.
