Te Ao Hurihuri: The Changing World shows Māori engaged energetically in building and rebuilding their communities through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries as Crown policies re-oriented from the acquisition of Māori land to its development. Māori held fiercely to iwi-specific connectedness, community organisation and te reo me ona tikanga (the language and its customs). New kinds of Māori institutions released the dynamism and creativity of tangata whenua, but the struggle continued against a background of social and economic hardship that burdens so many Māori lives. Drawn from the landmark publication, Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History (2014), Te Ao Hurihuri brings the history up to the present.
