Chinese New Zealanders

Chinese New Zealanders.

by Helene Wong

"Chinese New Zealanders" provides an overview of migration to Aotearoa New Zealand from the 1860s until the present day. The article outlines push-and-pull factors that contributed to various waves of migration, how Pākehā New Zealanders responded to these waves, and adaptations made by Chinese migrants as they adjusted to their new home.
