‘Weary lies the heart that carries the hopes and dreams of their communities, villages, and families.’ – Patrick Thomsen
A thought-provoking set of leading Maori, Pasifika, and Tangata Tiriti writers combine in this stirring BWB Text from celebrated digital magazine e-Tangata. Traverse a landscape of contemporary and historical issues through the lens of a mother’s loss, a man’s hard-won expertise, a homesick student abroad, and with the knowing that all good things begin with ten guitars. These writings exemplify that grief and hope go hand-and-hand in the pursuit of justice and the reclaiming of identities in Aotearoa and the Pacific.
