He kitenga kanohi
He hokinga whakaaro
A face seen,
a thought returned

Distinguishing dance from movement may be a matter of state of mind, of invested meaning. Dance in English seems easy to define but when we get to phrases like 'the dance of desire' or 'we were lead on a merry dance' and when we try and untangle dance from stance or, in some cases, trance and the dance of an eyebrow or a look we need to carefully describe what is going on.

2 Waking up to Te Reo

This paper looks at some of the issues involved in Maori language policy. The point of view taken is from broadcasting but the intent has been to give a general summary as the discussion proceeds. There has been an emphasis on the history of Maori language bureaucracy and the idea of Te Matawai, a super Department or Ministry for the language. There is also a discussion of Pakeha speaking Maori and consideration of language sovereignty issues.

3 Strengthening language: some more thoughts on Maori and Samoan

4 Statements and doubts about ethnic identity in Aotearoa

Here are four perspectives. These are each distinct but they fall into two kinds of writing. The first two by John Rangihau on being Maori and Michael King on being Pakeha begin with assertions or statements about identity. The second two, one by Lydia Wevers that critically reviews the thinking of Michael King and one by Emma West that critically reviews being Maori- West does not specifically mention Rangihau- proceed from doubt about identity. Having said that, in all of the writing there are various kinds of doubts and statements.
