Saturday 3rd August: A racist tirade against an Invercargill taxi driver from Pakistan, and backlash against the Geographic Board’s recommendation that the Maori names for the North and South Islands can be used officially. Are these signs that some Pakeha New Zealanders feel their culture and even the English language is under attack?

Sunday 4th August: Rongoa Maori practitioners met at Parihaka last week to share knowledge on healing methods and discuss how they could safeguard their traditions while accepting a limited degree of government support.
