BWB Winter Series: Lana Lopesi and Emma Ng: The Pacific—Divider or Connector?

6pm, Mon 29 October

General entry

Free

Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, the great ocean continent, is traditionally a connector and an ancestor. Imperialism in the Moana, however, created false divides between islands and separated peoples. Lana Lopesi and Emma Ng discuss how the adaptability of Moana peoples is now turning the ocean back into the unifying continent it once was.

In partnership with Bridget Williams Books.
