The discovery of Aotearoa-New Zealand, the last place on Earth aside from the Anarctic to be peopled, is surrounded by myths. Mana Maori explores the histories of the first Polynesians to discover the land, their encounters with Europeans, and the country?s subsequent settlement by Westerners. Among the topics discussed are the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman and the Dutch immigration wave of the 1950s; an overview of the indigenous Maori culture and the relationships of Maori to their land; and the vital role of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, a contested agreement between the Maori people and the British Crown, which had repercussions that continue to this day.
Fanny Wonu Veys is the curator for Oceania at the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden.
