Mana Tuturu by Barry Barclay
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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 the commercial world which 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 post-colonial country, should read and ponder on.
