Will people step up now and take the time to learn, know and feel the history of the places they call home?

Join Rachel Buchanan and Honiana Love (Acting Chief Executive of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision) as they discuss Ko Taranaki Te Maunga — Buchanan’s acclaimed BWB Text.

Hailed as a ‘whakapapa-memoir’, this deeply personal narrative describes her connection to Taranaki—the land and mountain—and the ongoing impact of te pāhuatanga, the invasion of Parihaka.
