Description

Te Ara Hou - The New Society is the second volume in the history of Maori in Nelson and Marlborough. This history details Maori participation in the European settlement society, from commitment to Christianity to enthusiasm for commerce and relationships with Europeans. It shows how Maori fared under European institutions, struggled to survive and how Maori culture and language were swamped by assimilation and Anglicisation.
