Reprint under consideration
Parihaka: the Art of Passive Resistance explores the impact and legacy of one of the major events in the history of Aotearoa New Zealand: the invasion of Parihaka Pa, Taranaki by the Crown, in 1881.

This ground-breaking publication brings together art, poetry and waiata from the past one hundred years, during which time Parihaka has inspired the painters Colin McCahon, Ralph Hotere and Tony Fomison, writers James K. Baxter, Harry Dansey and many others.
This book features over one hundred artworks exploring the legacy of Parihaka and its leaders, Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi. Important new works commissioned from leading Maori, Pakeha and Pacific artists are reproduced in full colour.
Drawing on previously unpublished manuscripts, many of the teachings and sayings, of Te Whiti and Tohu-in Maori and English-are reproduced in full with extensive annotation by Te Miringa Hohaia. Parihaka: The Art of Passive Resistance reaches beyond the art and literary worlds to engage with cultural issues important to all citizens of Aotearoa New Zealand.
