First Contact: Tasman's Arrival in Taitapu, 1642

First Contact: Tasman's Arrival in Taitapu, 1642 (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

By Salmond, Anne

As the Dutch replied in darkness with shouts and trumpet calls from the decks of their ships, the warriors must have been mystified by these creatures who entered into their rituals, yet used exotic instruments and spoke an unintelligible tongue. With the publication of her bo...ok Two Worlds, Anne Salmond introduced a penetrating rewriting of our traditional views of first contacts between the Maori and European worlds, helping us to view these meetings with fresh eyes.
