Decolonisation is a term that scares some, and gives hope to others. It is an uncomfortable and bewildering concept for many New Zealanders – yet needed if we are going to build a country that is fair and equal for all who live there.
This book sets out the case for decolonisation by illuminating – through anecdotal, real life examples – what decolonisation might look and feel like.
With contributions from Rebecca Kiddle, Bianca Elkington, Moana Jackson, Ocean Mercier, Mike Ross, Jennie Smeaton and Amanda Thomas.
