The New Zealand Wars: Te Papa Event Video

The New Zealand Wars were a series of conflicts that profoundly shaped the course and direction of our nation’s history.  Watch Mihingarangi Forbes in conversation with historian Vincent O'Malley at Te Papa's Marae, Rongomaraeroa, exploring the significance of these conflicts for New Zealanders today.  Recorded at an event held in October 2019 and hosted by Bridget Williams Books (BWB) to mark both the annual commemoration of these conflicts and that year's release of Vincent O'Malley's bestselling book The New Zealand Wars/Ngā Pakanga o Aotearoa .        See also this shorter video, featuring Vincent O'Malley introducing the topic at the same event.
