Ranginui Walker: An Accidental Activist in the Remaking of Aotearoa
The 1970s and 1980s were important years in the renegotiation of the place of Māori and their institutions in New Zealand. Ranginui Walker was one of the key contributors in these changes – as author, commentator, educator, activist, iwi member – and yet, he was not an obvious candidate in some ways. But his influence on debates and developments was to be profound.
