Contents:
Introduction: Kāinga, people, land, belonging -- 1. He tohu: tipping point -- 2. Māori: being normal -- 3. Takarangi: out of balance -- 4. Amnesia: colonisation by numbers -- 5. Assimilate: kāinga to wages to welfare -- 6. Equity: quantum of belonging -- 7. Iwification: silenced by democracy -- 8. Reconnect: adapt, innovate or perish -- 9. Equality: no JV without Article II -- Afterword: One planet: lest we forget.
Summary: "Through his own experience and the stories of his tīpuna, Paul Tapsell (Te Arawa, Tainui) charts the impact of colonisation on his people. Alienation from kāinga and whenua becomes a wider story of environmental degradation and system collapse. This book is an impassioned plea to step back from the edge. It is now up to the Crown, Tapsell writes, to accept the need for radical change. The ecological costs of colonisation are clear, and yet those same extractive and exploitative models remain foundational today. Only a complete step-change, one that embraces kāinga, can transform our lands and waterways, and potentially become a source of inspiration to the world"--Publisher information.
