WORD Christchurch

Cities have a contested and complex history in works of Māori literature, featuring memorably in many of our most celebrated works. In stories, cities can be both cold sites of disconnect and vibrant cultural spaces.

Chaired by Jordan Tricklebank (Ngāti Maniapoto), this session brings together Tīhema Baker (Raukawa te Au ki te Tonga, Ātiawa ki Whakarongotai, Ngāti Toa Rangatira), Nic Low (Ngāi Tahu), Robert Sullivan (Ngāpuhi, Kāi Tahu), and Isla Huia (Te Āti Haunui a-Pāpārangi, Uenuku) for kōrero focused on what it means to live and write as Māori in the city.
