              "Polynesian Panthers records the Pacific rights and social activist movement in New Zealand, told by those who were there. Forming in 1971, the Polynesian Panthers sought to raise consciousness and took action in response to the racism and discrimination Pacific peoples faced in ...New Zealand in the 1970s and 1980s. The Panthers organised prison visit programmes and sporting and debating teams for inmates; provided a halfway-house service for young men released from prison; ran homework centres; and offered 'people's loans', legal aid and food banks that catered for 600 families at their height. Drawing on interviews, memoirs, poetry, newspaper articles and critical analysis, Polynesian Panthers is a thought-provoking account of this period in New Zealand"--Publisher information.

              the Art of Excavation (Paperback)

              By Tamu, Leilani

              In The Art of Excavation, Leilani Tamu delves into the complex and multifaceted nature of the region that we know as the Pacific. In poetry that is by turns fierce and political, tender and insightful, contemplative and intimate, Leilani creates a beautiful 'ie toga (fine mat) th...at weaves together living memory as an exploration of history in all of its many forms and complexities. Challenging the popular orthodox approach of 'digging up' the past, Leilani reclaims the process of excavation as a creative metaphor for reframing and retelling Pacific stories. This book is a vibrant and challenging offering from a gifted ambassador for poetry and Pacific art.
