MAOR307 Te Tūtakitanga o Ngā Ao e Rua

The study of the post-contact Indigenous histories of Aotearoa and other parts of eastern Polynesia.

This paper focuses on the history of New Zealand and the other islands of Polynesia since contact with Europeans; hence the Māori title of the paper may be translated 'The Meeting of Two Worlds'. The course readings and discussions will juxtapose European-oriented and indigenous histories narrating the early contact and colonial eras, with particular reference to the indigenous responses to Europeans, the local forms of resistance and the struggle for land. A section will also focus on the work of the Waitangi Tribunal as a collector and maker of history. All the texts are written in the English language, though some of them use indigenous terms and phrases.
