    The Story of the Ventnor.

    The Story of the Ventnor

    by Kirsten Wong

    In 1902, thirteen lives were lost when the SS Ventnor sank off the Hokianga coast in Northland. The ship was carrying the carefully packaged bones of almost five hundred Chinese goldminers on their way home for burial. Despite immediate efforts to retrieve the bones, the ship and its precious cargo were lost. Over the following months, some of the bones washed up on Hokianga beaches. Most of these bones were collected and cared for by local iwi, with the stories of the shipwreck and the Chinese kōiwi passed down across generations of Māori. Over one hundred years later, some of the decendants of the goldminers discovered the fate of the bones and the kindness that iwi had shown and travelled north to learn more. A shared respect for the ancestors has since drawn together Chinese New Zealand communities and the iwi who are now kaitiaki of the goldminers’ remains.

    Choie Sew Hoy: Otago Pioneer.

    Choie Sew Hoy: Otago Pioneer

    by Trevor Agnew and Jenny Sew Hoy Agnew

    Choie Sew Hoy came to New Zealand from China in 1869, after working in the goldfields of California and Australia. He became a successful merchant and entrepreneur in Otago and was prominent in public life. He was also a well-known leader and benefactor for the Otago Chinese community. In 2019, 250 of his descendants came together in Dunedin for a family reunion to celebrate 150 years since their forebear arrived in New Zealand. Choie Sew Hoy is one of many early immigrants who made an important contribution to New Zealand society. Sew Hoy’s story explores the idea that people from a variety of countries came to make Aotearoa home and whether their experiences were positive or negative depended on how the migrants were treated.

    A traditional tale from Indonesia, retold by Lavinia Disa Winona Araminta; illustrations by Scott Pearson

    This story is a popular children’s story in Indonesia and Malaysia. There are several different versions.

    Fleet of Foot

    by Paula Morris; illustrations by Andrew Burdan

    The movement of Māori to the cities in the 1950s and 1960s was one of the most significant movements of people in our recent history. Paula Morris has used stories from her whānau as a basis for “Fleet of Foot”, a work of fiction that sits alongside “Kei Te Tāone Nui”, an article in the same journal that also explores the topic of Māori urbanisation. The text has links to the Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum.

  • Kei te Tāone Nui: Māori and the City (1945–1970)

    Kei te Tāone Nui: Māori and the City (1945–1970)

    by Samuel Denny, Caitlin Moffat-Young, and Aroha Harris

    The post-Second-World-War era in Aotearoa New Zealand saw one of the fastest rates of urban migration in the world, with Māori migrating to cities in large numbers to take advantage of new economic opportunities. The “golden city” offered much, but it came at a high price. Despite an unquestioned narrative in Pākehā communities that New Zealand’s race relations were world leading, Māori moving to the city encountered prejudice and discrimination at many levels. Māori responded to these challenges in multiple ways, for example, by establishing formal and informal groups that strengthened collective expression of Māori cultural values and practices. By gathering together to debate and take action on key issues, the seeds were sown for the modern Māori protest movement as well as the forging of a new urban Māori identity.
