Captain Cook and the Doctrine of Discovery
Time & Location
About the Event
Brought to you by Tamaki Treaty Workers
Cook's ‘discovery’ of New Zealand was one of many examples of Europeans ‘discovering’ lands long occupied by indigenous peoples. Dr Susan Healy and Dr Tim McCreanor bring this successful event to the North Shore. They will discuss where this concept came from and how it continues to affect us. Mitzi Nairn will lead small group discussion about how we can move past this history towards relationships of real encounter.
