Mana Wahine

Mana Wahine is a theory explored both in Annie Mikaere’s “Maori Women: Caught in the Contradictions of a Colonised Reality” and Naomi Simmonds’ “Mana wahine: Decolonising Politics.” Simmonds describes mana whaine as the explicit examination of the, “intersection of being Maori and female.” (Simmonds, 11). 193 more words

Appropriation

Tina Engels Schwarzpaul raises some very interesting points in their piece, “Dislocating William and Rau: The Wild Man in Virtual Worlds.” The most notable point that I have taken is that appropriation is the act of removing cultures from their social, poltical and economic contexts for profit. 216 more words

Representation and Stereotypes

In Melanie Walls’ “Stereotypical Constructions of the Maori ‘Race’ in the Media” it is highlighted that there are four main stereotypes of Maori within media. The first being the ‘comic other’ who provides comic relief, the ‘natural athlete’ who draws on their ‘primitive’ nature to fight and wage war, the ‘political radical activist’ who is socially deviant and the ‘quintessential Maori’ which is produced by Maori content makers (Wall, 42-44). 303 more words

Colonization

The image I have selected to analyse is the map of New Zealand/Aotearoa drawn by James Cook as I believe it reflects western attitudes towards ‘others.’ First, it must be recognized that this idea of ‘The Other’ reinforces, “the notion that Europeans are superior to their ‘others’.” (O’Shaughnessy and Stadler, 403). 676 more words
