In early 1817 Tuai, a young Ngare Raumati chief from the Bay of Islands, sailed to England in search of knowledge, goods, technologies and new relationships with the people known as Pākehā. When he returned in 1819, integrating these discoveries into his Māori world was not as easy as he or his missionary friends might have imagined.
Join authors Kuni Kaa Jenkins and Alison Jones in conversation with Hirini Kaa as they explore the action-packed life of Tuai, who not only travelled across the world, but across cultures.
