'The Impact of the Thames Gold Rush on the Culture and Livelihoods of Local Maori' by Nicole Thorburn

The middle of the nineteenth century was a time of immense change for Maori of the Hauraki and Coromandel area. As the discovery of gold brought thousands of prospective European diggers to the region, local iwi showed leadership and agency in adapting to the challenges of the gold fields. Unlike previous histories of Thames, which have sometime sought to push Maori involvement on the gold fields to the background, this discussion sets out to bring the social and economic ingenuity of Hauraki Maori into the spotlight.
