Maori and Croatians in New Zealand, Memory, belonging, identity

Sažetak
At the turn of the twentieth century, Croatians were migrating from Dalmatia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and Māori, having become part of the British Empire, were losing much of their land. All were looking for work. They came together on the gumfields of the far north, digging up kauri gum resin for export." "Many of the Croatians settled and married - some to mail-order brides from home, others to local Māori women - and a unique community was born. Drawing on a range of sources, from official historical narratives on the kauri gum industry, to oral histories, novels, letters, newspaper articles, marriage certificates, and much more, Senka Boz̆ić-Vrbanc̆ić examines Māori-Croatian relationships on the gumfields and beyond. This is a significant contribution to ideas about migration and displacement and an important discussion of the impact of different social models - colonialism, assimilation, biculturalism, and multiculturalism - on Māori and Croatian identity and memory. The book is illustrated with historical photographs.
