  1. Stages of a Powhiri
  2. In Dick’s lecture, he spoke about Maori representation in souvenirs or contemporary imaging always being set years ago. Recent images are never shown of them and they are only portrayed similarly to how they were at the first point of European contact. They are almost always shown in traditional dress and pictures of them show them living in huts etc. although they have not lived this way for decades. This is another false representation of them as a race in current times and add to the long list of ways Maori are misrepresented as a Race of people in NZ and around the world.
