Spanning nearly two centuries from first contact through to settlement and apology, The Great War for New Zealand focuses on the human impact of the Waikato War, its origins and aftermath. Launched at the Waahi Poukai on 8 October, the book arrives as the Government announces a national day of commemoration for the land wars and key sites are returned to iwi.

Mihi Forbes (Ngāti Maniapoto, Ngāti Paoa) is an international award-winning journalist and television presenter, currently Specialist Correspondent, Māori Affairs, for Radio New Zealand. Tom Roa (Puurekireki Marae) is Negotiator for Te Arataura, Waikato-Tainui, and a lecturer in Māori and Indigenous Studies at the University of Waikato. Rahui Papa (Poohara Marae) is Chairman for Te Arataura, Waikato-Tainui, and currently co-chairs the Ngaati Koroki-Kahukura Tribal Trust. Vincent O’Malley is a founding partner of HistoryWorks, and has written a number of books on New Zealand history prior to The Great War for New Zealand.

All are welcome; no RSVP required.
