Confronting colonisation

Groundwork is part of a 7 part documentary series in which Pākehā consider their responsibility to confront and dismantle colonisation. One episode is being released each day this week on the NZ Herald website. The work responds to calls from Māori for Pākehā to educate Pākehā about colonisation and our Te Tiriti responsibilities.
Filmmaker Kathleen Winter hopes the series documentary will encourage Pākehā to “realise the impact they can make by speaking up and speaking out – especially to each other…and join those who are taking action against colonial structures of power.”
In this episode, I talk about inherited privilege and the lands my great-great grandfather “acquired” in Canterbury – lands that were part of the Canterbury Purchase.
There’s more of my writing on addressing colonisation and honouring Te Tiriti in State of the Pākehā Nation
