Tuia 250. Re-framing first contact

Next year marks the anniversary of the arrival of the first face to face meeting between tangata whenua and European sailors. The Te Hā Sestercennial Trust is preparing for a year of commemoration titled Tuia 250. It’s a commemoration of Pacific voyagers who made their way to Aotearoa, and the European sailors who arrived in October 1769. Historians Dame Anne Salmond and Dr Wayne Ngata talk to Kathryn about re-framing the conversation around first contact to include narratives from many different cultures.
