Stories of the second Great Maori Migration

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 23 February 2018

Exploring what being Māori means today, author and historian Bradford Haami (Ngāti Awa) looks back to the experiences of those who formed part of the second great Maori migration. He has traced the development of an urban Māori identity over the last century in his book, Urban Maori: The Second Great Migration. He spoke to more than 60 people capturing personal stories of whanau who moved to the cities and Australia, away from their Iwi. Bradford Haami has written extensively about Maori history and culture; his books include the bestselling True Red: The Life of an ex-Mongrel Mob Leader and the award-winning Ka Mau Te Wehi: Taking Haka to the World. Brad is also a film writer and consultant whose credits include the series Mataku and the film Mahana.
