Hīkoi: Forty years of Māori protest

Hīkoi is a photographic history of Māori protest – the public face, the rationale, the organisation and the toil behind the scenes. The images and accompanying text tells the story of protests that were turning points: Springbok Tour demonstrations and Raglan, Bastion Point and Waitangi, the Tent Embassy at Parliment in 1972, the Māori land march 1975 and Hīkoi 2004.

This book provides a glimpse of some of the hard earned fruits of those protests: Some traditional lands returned to Māori, the Waitangi Tribunal established, te reo Māori made an official language, Māori-medium education and Māori media.

Informative and entertaining, this book combines the text of a professional historian with the powerful images of some of our best photographers to provide a 40 year slice of the modern history of Aotearoa New Zealand.
