Questions of identity and belonging have been in the spotlight in New Zealand in recent years, and Celebrating Forgetting investigates these through the history of Maori and Croatian communities in the far North. In the early twentieth century, both were dislocated - Croats emigrated from Dalmatia, then a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and Maori, having become a part of the British Empire, lost much of their land, which resulted in local migration. The gumfields in the far north of New Zealand was the place of encounter and intermarriage between the two groups. Drawing on a range of sources, from official historical narratives on the kauri gum industry, to Croatian and Maori oral histories, novels, letters, photos, newspaper articles, marriage certificates, and much more, Bozi?-Vrban?i? examines Maori-Croatian relationships on the gumfields and beyond. This is an important discussion of the impact of different social models - such as colonialism, assimilation, biculturalism, and multiculturalism - on Maori and Croatian memories and identities. Located at the crossroads of socio/cultural anthropology, history, cultural studies, feminist and postcolonial theory, this book is distinctive in connecting an empirical study with wider theoretical debates on identity. It is heavily illustrated with historical and contemporary photographs from the Maori-Croat communities.
