Product Description

The narrative of the Parihaka community sheds light on a critical period in Aotearoa's colonial past. As the government seized their land, Maori communities across the region engaged in non-violent resistance, with Parihaka emerging as a powerful symbol of defiance under the leadership of Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi. Rather than a history of Parihaka itself, Hazel Riseborough's compelling account delves into the government's systematic efforts to dismantle Maori rights and self-determination. First published in 1989, Days of Darkness is published now in a new edition which includes opening words contributed by the Parihaka community.
