Title:Pakeha identity and Maori language and culture : bicultural identity and language in New Zealand
Abstract:"Since European contact with Māori, fluency in te reo Māori (Māori language) in New Zealand has dramatically declined, however there has been a revitalisation of te reo Māori in the last 25 years. However, not only have Māori undertaken to keep the language alive but additionally some Pākehā (non-Māori New Zealanders) have also taken on the challenge. This work explores the experiences of European New Zealanders who have learnt te reo Māori (Māori language) and how through their learning they have gained a better understanding of what it means to be Pākehā in New Zealand. This monograph looks at the reasons why Pākehā New Zealanders want to learn te reo Māori and their experiences from learning te reo Māori and being involved with Māori culture within both te ao Māori (the Māori world) and te ao Pākehā (the western world). The concept of a Pākehā identity, one that involves a relationship with te ao Māori is also investigated along with the exploration of the idea that te reo Māori can be the basis of a shared national identity that could bring all New Zealanders together."--Back cover
