Hear David Wong Hop and Lisa Truttman discuss "Journeys through the Pacific Ocean to Tāmaki Makarau" for this Heritage Festival talk.

From China, Syria and India, to England, Scotland, and Ireland, our ancestors endured long and often arduous journeys to reach their new homeland of New Zealand. Join David Wong Hop and Lisa Truttman as they look at some of these pre-1890 journeys, from the shipwrecks and the hardship of the voyage, to how ‘shipping intelligence’ was reported, along with difficulties encountered - including the Chinese who had to pay poll tax to enter New Zealand.
