In a book that is both deeply personal and highly political, Melani Anae recalls the radical activism of Auckland's Polynesian Panthers - the movement modelled on the US Black Panther Party 'but without guns'. The Polynesian Panthers was founded in response to the racist treatmen...t of Pacific Islanders in the era of the Dawn Raids.

The Polynesian Panthers defined an emerging group of Pacific people whose legacy still resonates in Aotearoa today.
