Pākehā-Māori Narratives – A New Zealand Genre
Paperback | English
First-hand accounts by Europeans who lived as Māori in early New Zealand.
PĀKEHĀ-MĀORI NARRATIVES is a collection of 20 first-hand accounts written or dictated by European men who voluntarily crossed cultures to live and trade among the Māori tribes of New Zealand during the 1800s. Valued conduits to prized flintlock muskets, munitions and general trade goods, they were soon firmly integrated into the communities of their hosts, becoming in the process, a distinctive hybrid class, recognised and described by both cultures as Pākehā Māori.
