Keynote Speaker: Dame Anne Salmond
Keynote Speaker – Dame Anne Salmond - Ngā Rākau a Te Pākeha : The Dominion Museum East Coast expedition 1923
Co-presenting with Billie Lythberg and also Natalie Robertson if she can make it - Ngāti Porou film maker and photographer
This paper will look at the life of the films and photographs from the Dominion Museum expedition to Te Tairāwhiti in 1923. This expedition, initiated by Sir Apirana Ngata to record ancestral tikanga that he feared might be vanishing, involved Te Rangihiroa (Peter Buck), Johannes Andersen, Elsdon Best and the film-maker and photographer James McDonald (Anne Salmond's great grandfather). We will reflect on contemporary experiments involving these taonga.
Dame Anne Salmond is Distinguished Professor of Maori Studies and Anthropology at the University of Auckland. She has written a number of award-winning books, including The Trial of the Cannibal Dog: Captain Cook in the South Seas and Aphrodite’s Island: The European Discovery of Tahiti, that examine James Cook’s Pacific explorations, and won many literary prizes including the Prime Minister’s Award for Literary Achievement. Her latest book, Tears of Rangi: Experiments Across Worlds, has just been released. She has been elected as a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences in the US and a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. In 2013 she was awarded the Rutherford Medal, New Zealand’s top scientific award, and selected as New Zealander of the Year.
