32 – Pākehā and Moko

This time we will talk about what Europeans thought about moko, given it was something entirely different to what they had ever expereinced before, as well generally the sort of things they recorded about moko and how it was captured visually.  To finish, we will discuss those Europeans and Pākehā who ended up receiving moko themselves, some against their will.

  1. Just completed binge listening and I’m now completely caught. Yours is the only podcast I listen to at normal speed (1.25x for the others) so I can get the Maori language, and enjoy your accent. Looking forward to more episodes!
