Paul Tapsell

$18.00

Through his own experience and the stories of his tīpuna, Paul Tapsell (Te
Arawa, Ngāti Raukawa) charts the destruction caused by the alienation of
his people from their kāinga and whenua, and from each other.
Colonialism and capitalism, extraction and exploitation, have
diminished Papatūānuku to the point of extinction and the Earth mother
now demands that humanity humble itself to restore balance in our
relationship with the natural world.
This book calls for action from the Crown to recognise, protect and restore
the sovereignty of Kāinga communities as promised in Te Tiriti. We must
fi nd a way for Pākehā farmers and Māori kāinga to work together in true
partnership. The application of mātauranga Māori is vital if New Zealand
is to have any hope of surviving the climate crisis before us.
