A new weekly feature, where I share some of my favourite reads from the past week.
#1 The Spinoff Interview of Mana Magazine editor, Leonie Hayden. A wonderful interview with Leonie covering her role at Mana Magazine and the visibility of Māori in the New Zealand media.
#2 Again from The Spinoff, a list of the top 50 nonfiction books by, or about, Māori. Following on from their top 50 New Zealand non fiction books which suffered from a complete white wash, amends were well and truly made with this list of cracking reads and resources from Te Ao Māori.
#3 After 5 years of conversation, the Independent Constitutional Working Group, established by the Iwi Leaders Group, and Chaired by Margaret Mutu and Moana Jackson, released their findings and recommendations for alternative constitutional arrangements.
#4 Also in the legal sphere, the Waitangi Tribunal released a draft chapter on its urgent inquiry into the reforms of Te Ture Whenua Māori 1993.
#5 From Media Diversified, the thought-provoking piece entitled “Diversity is Dead, and Whiteness Killed It”
