Parihaka: The Art of Passive Resistance

Author(s): Te Miringa Hohaia; Lara Strongman; Gregory O'Brien


A bestseller in New Zealand since 2000, when an exhibition at City Gallery in Wellington broke new ground in the study of Maori art and history, this is a new paperback edition of the exhibition catalog.

More than 120 paintings, written accounts, and photographs from the time, following the English invasion in 1881 chronicle the story of brave leaders Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi, and celebrate the strength and spirit of the Parihaka community, even under colonial rule.
