  • About the Book
  • Mana Tuturu is a timely, valuable, and immensely wise meditation on the complex and difficult problems that arise when the treasures of indigenous peoples, especially Maori, enter a commercial world that seeks to reproduce and disseminate them. Well aware that such matters are not simple, Barry Barclay draws on his long experience as a filmmaker, often depicting Maori subjects, to conduct a hui, or public forum, to show, to listen, to suggest ways in which two worlds, each important, can meet. His gripping and moving book will be a guide in the areas of film and television, libraries, archives, and museums, jurisprudence and ethics; but beyond that it is the kind of classic book that anyone seriously concerned about the culture of contemporary New Zealand, or any postcolonial country, should read and ponder on.
