We catch up again with New Zealand teacher Angela Tutty, to talk about New Zealand literature.
The session with Angela led into issues about the treatment of, and recognition of the rich history and culture of first nations people.
Angela is open about her inability, as a New Zealander of European heritage, to speak for the Maori people. But she is far more advanced in her understanding of Maori culture than most white Australians are about our indigenous culture.
The historical and cultural developments that have taken place in New Zealand are far more advanced than many other countries with colonial pasts. There is much that we can learn from New Zealand in this regard.
