Sharing the Cloak Te Korowai Atawhai

Author(s): Pam Kopecky

Maori History

“ ‘Sharing the Cloak’ is unique, in that it manages to blend historical fact with a deep and often moving personal narrative ... and also shines an excellent spotlight on the more intimate side of Maoridom; exploring the multiple issues of Tikanga, personal histories, contemporary issues such as the Treaty of Waitangi, traditional education, and of course the very real and often intense side of Maori spiritualism. A lot of the material explored by Kopecky is not main-stream, and it is this often less than well documented information that makes the work so fascinating.... What makes her work even more critical, is that she is writing from a fully Pakeha perspective, which of course means that non-Maori students will also gain a uniquely valuable insight into our country’s rich and diverse history from one of their own”
