Landscape/Community: Perspectives from New Zealand History

Overview

Overview

New Zealanders have a strong affinity with the land. Firm connections are drawn between the land and cultural identity in the economy, politics and art. Histories of migration, settlement and environmental adaptation ensure the subject of communities and landscapes is increasingly important in New Zealand studies. Maori stress the significance of their relationship with the land and in recent times government agencies have sought to change many placenames from English back to the Maori original in order to signify intellectual decolonization. The debate this has caused demonstrates strong feelings that the names of the land and the land itself are tied into ideas of identity in diverse communities. This collection of essays explores these complex relationships in different parts of the country and at different times.
