Issue 4, New Zealand & Taiwan Special Edition, 2021
According to the Austronesian Migration Theory, Māori descend from the indigenous tribes of Taiwan, who migrated widely. As a result of this migration, New Zealand and Taiwan share genealogical, linguistic, and cultural connections. In this ground-breaking special edition of Māori literary journal Ora Nui, writing and artwork by the Indigenous peoples of New Zealand and Taiwan are presented side-by-side. The resulting journal is a rich offering of short fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, essays and visual art.
