It is important to understand our shared history of Aotearoa and the incremental negative phases that took place during the Colonisation.
It is important to understand our shared history of Aotearoa and the incremental negative phases that took place during the Colonisation. The suppression of Māori language and Culture is a shameful fact that contemporary New Zealanders are saddled with. Misconceptions of our early history abound.Just listen on radio talk back, to a host of uninformed people regurgitating disproven facts.I am a Pākeha and have been learning Te Reo Māori for 3 years.I am an advocate for people to learn NZ History and Te Reo Māori and thereby, be drawn into a sort of contextualisation of who and where they fit as Kiwis. Ngā mihi, Barry Dulieu.
