Abstract and Keywords

Indigeneity in Aotearoa/New Zealand is as much a matter of an ‘a-colonial’ insistence on the longstanding presence of First peoples as it is one of anti-colonial resistance to continuing attempts on the part of non-Maori to corral, control and appropriate indigenous expression for the nation’s sake—attempts nowhere more evident than in national media. Focusing on the nature of indigenous self-insistence rather than the better-documented history of resistance to non-Maori settlement, this chapter reveals a consubstantial sovereignty at work in Maori settings which relates to the past, people and place in ways that challenge the highly mediated national imaginary by expressing a longer indigenous history of inhabitation.

Keywords: Indigeneity, Aotearoa, sovereignty, media, colonialism
