Horse racing, dancing, rugby, a housing crisis and a centuries-old kete announce the arrival of Stories from Tangata Whenua. Drawn from the award-winning 2014 book Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History, the stories are short, lively reads on diverse topics. The first five have just been published by Radio New Zealand and the entire series will be added to our online New Zealand History Collection over the course of 2018. In the meantime, head to the Radio New Zealand website for a taste of what’s to come.
