Jade Taniwha: Māori-Chinese Identity and Schooling in Aotearoa

Front Cover
Rautaki Limited, Jan 1, 2007 - Chinese - 179 pages
This book provides a detailed historical and sociological context for Maori-Chinese New Zealanders concentrating on the role that schooling has played in the formation of their identity. Lee (Ngati Mahuta, Zhong Shan and Taishan Chinese) shows how racism in New Zealand's schools has impacted on members of this community. She shows that the identity of this unique cultural group is the result of a fascinating history on the margins of mainstream New Zealand society, one often intersected by racism, exclusion and colonialism. However, Maori-Chinese draw strength from their different traditions, taking pride in their unique identity while moving between the different worlds of Chinese, Maori and 'mainstream' New Zealand
