              Bitter Sweet: Indigenous Women in the Pacific (EPUB ebook)

              Edited by Herda, Phyllis; Jones, Alison; Suaalii, Tamasailau M.

              The South Pacific has long represented the possibilities of a pure space, outside the ambivalences of a 'developed' world. But the indigenous women of this region often speak of the bitter sweetness of their experiences. Pacific women's multiple engagements with work and with sov...ereignty politics, as well as with their portrayal in film, poetry and tourism, are at the heart of this book. The contributors address the interesting, ongoing questions of representation and identity, as well as their place in the shifting politics of the contemporary Pacific.

              "Tuai of Ngare Raumati was probably the most written-about Maori in the first quarter of the 19th century. His name or a version of it appears in most indexes of books about the pre-1830s Bay of Islands. But almost all modern references to him are in passing. This book indicates ...that Tuai, who was born about 1797, should be more widely remembered for the key roles he played in those early engagements. He was 27 when he died included periods living in Australia and England, and he probably knew more than any other contemporary Maori person about European life. He sought Pakeha friends, and worked hard at educating them, contributing significantly to early-nineteenth-century English and French knowledge of Maori language and culture. Tuai's plans for Pakeha were shaped by the tensions in the Bay of Islands between his Ngre Raumati people (to the south east) and a northern alliance of hap under the leadership of Ngpuhi. Following Tuais death in 1824, Nagre Raumati were dispersed from their territories, and Nagpuhi could complete their push into the Bay of Islands. Perhaps because of this defeat, Tuais story is only now being properly told"--Publisher information.
