9783639250688: Power, Prejudice, Parihaka: Unbridled Power

Power, Prejudice, Parihaka is a textbook set in the new colony of New Zealand in the 1860s, 70s, and 80s. The story is centred around one event which occurred on the 5 November, 1881. On this day armed constabulary entered a small M?ori village known as Parihaka P? and forcibly arrested significant M?ori leaders. These men had been involved in a non-violent protest to regain their ancestral lands. This military act destroyed M?ori hopes for regaining what had been historical theirs. The major aim of this book is to describe a model of colonization through the patterns of activities which preceded the arrests at Parihaka. There is, however, a second aim. This is to enhance understanding of the actions of others through recognition that we are all products of our past histories, our many stories, and the fabric of our lives. In order to understand others we need first to understand the past with its many and varied intertwining narratives in which no one perspective holds the total picture.

From the Author:

This was a labor of love because the history of events in Parihaka, New Zealand, are not well-known even within New Zealand. It is a very sad story, one that it is said Mahatma Gandhi described these events as the first Western non-violent protest. Despite this the Maori still lost their lands, their hopes and their dreams because of the concepts involved in colonization. The author believes the colonizers did not think they were doing anything wrong. Their world view was different from the owners of the land. They failed to see the hurt they caused, not only for the first generation, but also for the generations to follow. These injustices are currently being addressed through special courts set up to explore land issues within New Zealand.

About the Author:

Dr Patricia Berwick is assistant professor at Dubai University College in the United Arab Emirates. Formally she was a director of institutional research at Ras Al Khaimah Medical and Health Sciences University, professor at the City University of Science and Information Technology Peshawar Pakistan.
