Mā te huruhuru te manu ka rere – The Formation of Māori Identity in Dunedin High Schools
In the absence of culturally strong home bases and the opportunities to interact in a Māori environment in Dunedin, young Māori must look for other avenues where they can establish a sense of being Māori. Secondary schools are one area in which they can develop and construct their Māori identity. Through the experiences of five former Dunedin high school students this dissertation will investigate how secondary schools in Dunedin effect the development and formation of Māori identity.
