(p.11) Chapter 1 Māori People in Pacific Spaces
Once Were Pacific

Alice Te Punga Somerville

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter describes the ways in which Māori are present in Pacific spaces. It begins by considering the singular figure of Te Rangihiroa, a Māori anthropologist whose career took him to Hawaii in 1927, followed by a discussion of the Māori village installation at the Polynesian Cultural Centre (PCC), a Mormon-run Polynesian visitor attraction in Ḋahu. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the presence of Māori texts in Pacific anthologies, which gestures toward the place of politics and cultural negotiation in the production of literary products.

Keywords:   Māori, Te Rangihiroa, Hawaii, Polynesian Cultural Centre, PCC, Ḋahu, Pacific anthologies
