Resources for allies
A range of resources which explore the role of non-indigenous supporters of indigenous justice struggles. They have been generated through discussions with people active as allies in North America, Australia and here in Aotearoa.
While these resources focus specifically on relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples the underlying principles have relevance and will be of interest to people who work as allies across a range of other social justice issues.
The book “Working as Allies: supporters of indigenous justice reflect“ provides in depth interviews with allies in Australia and New Zealand.
The State of the Pākehā Nation
In the State of the Pākehā Nation commissioned for Waitangi Day 2018, explores the necessity to unravel privilege, racism and colonisation, and suggests ways in which Pākehā might work to do so.
