Google’s logo for today celebrates what would have been Dame Whina Cooper’s 120th birthday.

The logo shows a likeness of Dame Whina with people following in her wake, paying tribute to “her most historic achievement” the great land march in 1975.

According to the Google Doodle page, the doodle was created by Olivia Huynh who took inspiration from photos of the time.
