The earliest Māori-Pākehā engagements were vividly recorded by both Māori and Pākehā in drawings and writing in the early 1800's. These archival images tell stories about the ways Māori encountered pen and paper, which gives us a new perspective on the past.

He Kōrero: Words Between Us is a controversial and enlightening book that will stimulate fresh thinking about the first conversations between Māori and Pākehā.
