2004 - Dr Dame Joan Metge

From Waitangi Rua Rautau Lectures, 11:00 am on 14 February 2004

In 2004 retired anthropologist Dr Dame Joan Metge, gives an address entitled 'Rope Works - He Taura Whiri'. Using the metaphor of the taura whiri, or plaited rope, Dame Joan argues that a collective vision for the future can only be achieved if people work together. 'Nation-building, like rope-making, involves skill, co-operation and continuous hard work.'
