Historical Frictions: Māori Claims and Reinvented Histories
Auckland University Press, 2005 - 388 страница
This important book shows how the Waitangi Tribunal's rewriting of New Zealand's history is part of a much longer tradition. Belgrave explores how courts and commissions of inquiry became from 1840, places where Maori claims to resources and mana were debated as historical narratives of discovery and conquest, loss and displacement. Inquiries and claim settlements have adjusted relationships between Maori and the state and helped keep Maori custom alive. Chapters demonstrate how the Treaty of Waitangi and claim settlements have changed their meanings over time and how the Ngai Tahu, Taranaki, Muriwhenua and Chatham Islands claims have been re-examined over successive generations. Today, as Belgrave explains, the Waitangi Tribunal's own historical interpretations are influenced by the weight of these earlier investigations and by its political and legal role as a commission of inquiry.
