"Kia rongo mai ki taku whakaaro"

Maori voices in the Alexander Turnbull Library

Paul Meredith, Alice Te Punga Somerville

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Poses some possibilities for reading Māori texts alongside English language ethnographic texts, and draws our attention to the relationship between the writer and the reader. Posits that attending to Māori voices not only exposes areas of archival neglect, the limits of relying on published work, and the dangers of accepting 'traditional' understanding, but also makes us aware of the particular aspects we bring to our reading.
