Invasion and Resistance: Facing up to Parihaka

Saturday 13 May 2023, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM, Kiwi Hall. $20


Remember, remember the fifth of November? A day of grief for Hon. Mahara Okeroa and Ockham Book Awards shortlisted author, Rachel Buchanan, whose tūpuna were on the whenua when the Crown troops descended; a day of shame for Richard Shaw, whose great-grandfather was with the armed constabulary; a day of knowledge for academic Vincent O’Malley, who seeks to find the truth behind the records; and a day of atonement for former Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson, who delivered the Crown apology. A discussion that will attempt to face up to Parihaka and what it means to New Zealanders. Moderated by Ockham Book Awards short-listed author, Paul Diamond.
