Vincent O’Malley talks with Waikato-Tainui representatives Tom Roa and Rahui Papa about this landmark publication, which will be launched at the Waahi Poukai on 8 October.
Spanning nearly two centuries from first contact through to settlement and apology, The Great War for New Zealand focuses on the human impact of the Waikato War, its origins and aftermath. The book arrives as the Government announces a national day of commemoration for the conflict and key sites are returned to iwi.
