Title: He Rukuruku Whakaaro – Colonizing Myths Māori Realities

Author: Ani Mikaere

Iwi: Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Porou

Description: This book brings together a collection of papers that reflect on the impact of Pākehā law and values on Māori legal thought and practice. They discuss issues such as the illogicality of seeking justice for Māori within the confines of the colonisers law; the need for Pākehā to confront the implications of their positions as inheritors of the spoils of colonisation… “It is crucial that Māori continue to think and to imagine beyond the intellectual imprisonment of what our colonisers deem to be realistic…”
