Untold Pacific History
Untold Pacific History is a dynamic and often provocative account of New Zealand’s relationship with the Pacific and the broad impact it's had on New Zealand’s own history and relationship with Pacific peoples in Aotearoa today.
The series shines a light on five key stories in the Pacific that have been little-told in Aotearoa. From the epic drama of NZ’s colonisation of Samoa, schoolboys that were hidden under floorboards as part of the NZ Dawn Raids, to the extraordinary story of an allegedly ‘cursed’ hotel in the Cook Islands.
Untold Pacific History explores little-known snippets of the history of the Pacific and the part New Zealand has played in it.
