This book traces Māori engagement with handwriting from 1769 to 1826. Through beautifully reproduced written documents, it describes the first encounters Māori had with paper and writing and the first relationships between Māori and Europeans in the earliest school.
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.
