Jade Taniwha - Maori Chinese

Jenny Bol Jun Lee

Jade Taniwha: Maori-Chinese Identity and Schooling in Aotearoa is an insightful and often deeply personal account of Maori-Chinese identity in Aotearoa New Zealand.

At the heart of this book are the accounts of four Maori-Chinese recollecting experiences of identity through the lens of schooling.

Jenny Bol Jun Lee reveals that Maori-Chinese draw strength from their different traditions, taking pride in their unique identity while moving between the different worlds of Chinese, Maori and mainstream New Zealand.
