Cultural and national identity have changed dramatically in New Zealand during the latter part of the twentieth century, with the emergence of policies on biculturalism, the development of new immigrant communities, and the increased focus on the Treaty of Waitangi and the settlement of treaty claims. Recalling Aotearoa examines why these changes have occurred, and considers the new directions for New Zealand as a nation.
