Māori–Pasifika Collaborations

(p.101) Chapter 4 Māori–Pasifika Collaborations
Once Were Pacific

Alice Te Punga Somerville

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter focuses on the collaborative work of Rongo, Nesian Mystik, and Polynation, which produces a unique, historicized, specific articulation of Māori-Pasifika connections. Through collaborative work, Māori and Pasifika people in the national space have produced activist and creative work that not only articulates Māori connections with the Pacific, but also embodies and recalls connections through lived relationships and shared artistic vision. Each of the collaborations has taken shape in Auckland, New Zealand and confirms the centrality of the urban space in the negotiation of connections in the national context.

Keywords:   Rongo, Nesian Mystik, Polynation, Māori-Pasifika connections, Pasifika people, Māori people, Auckland, New Zealand
