Atholl Anderson (Ngāi Tahu) and Aroha Harris (Te Rarawa, Ngāpuhi) talk about new perspectives on Māori history, drawing on their work for Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History.

Described by Sir Tipene O’Regan as ‘One of the most significant books on the Māori world ever written’, this first one-volume history of Māori presents a sweeping narrative from ancient origins in South China to the present day.

These free public talks offer a glimpse into an exceptional new history that is important to all New Zealanders.
