Jamie Tuuta: When I go home, I’m still Boy

“I like taking the kids back to Waitara and Urenui. Going back home and realising that wi-fi is not the norm … that Sky television is not normal either. Most of the whānau don’t have doors on their bedrooms, let alone wallpaper on the walls. There’s a stark contrast that they can see.”

Reflections

My story, my shame, is tragically common

History

Great South Road: The Road of Refugees

The Great South Road was built in 1862 to carry a British army into the Waikato kingdom. When the British invaded the Waikato in 1863, soldiers shared the road with Māori refugees from Auckland. Scott Hamilton revisits that history in this excerpt from his book 'Ghost South Road'.
