The Māoriland Hub presents a unique series of Screen Lectures about the facts and aftermath of The New Zealand Wars. Screenings of the influential The New Zealand Wars television series (1998) will be followed by informal lectures and forums for public discussion. Acclaimed Māori historians, commentators, and Professor Belich will answer questions and present new research about the Wars and their influence on our society today.
Anyone interested in the fascinating stories of our past and present are welcome to attend. We especially welcome teachers and students of history.
