Please join us on Wednesday 4 March at 12.15pm for our History Group public talk for 2015.

Aroha Harris will talk about new perspectives on Māori history, drawing on the work she, Judith Binney and Atholl Anderson undertook when writing Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History.

Published by Bridget Williams Books and described by Sir Tipene O’Regan as ‘one of the most significant books on the Māori world ever written’ this one-volume history of Māori presents a sweeping narrative from ancient origins in South China to the present day.

This free public talk offers a glimpse into an exceptional new history that is important to all New Zealanders.
