Ask that Mountain – The story of Parihaka by Dick Scott. Hard covered book of 216 pages and printed in 1975.

The contents of the book are in nice condition. The dust jacket has some stains along the top and bottom where I suspect there was a taped clear plastic cover at some point. The book is full of information and has quite a few pics throughout.

The decade of warfare that divided the land in nineteenth century NZ is conveniently seen as the end of Maori struggle. But at Parihaka at the foot of sacred Taranaki mountain, resistance took a remarkable new turn. With the white feather as their emblem, two chiefs Te Whiti and Tohu, began preaching the then strange and unknown doctrine of passive resistance.
Parihaka was a village of peace and plenty, some said, where ‘the finest race of men in the Pacific’ could be found. Other saw it as a den of criminals in which had gathered ‘the turbulent, indolent scum of New Zealand’. When 2000 soldiers marched to destroy Parihaka, expel its inhabitants and exile the leaders, it was only the first, not the last, round of contention that has continued to the present day.
