In/visible Sight is a fascinating exploration of a little-known part of our history: the lives of part-Māori, part-Pākehā New Zealanders in the nineteenth century, especially between Ngāi Tahu and Pākehā settlers. Intermarriage (and the joining together of families) played a key role in both fostering and controlling interaction with Pākehā. The book highlights the complexities of those relationships, and ambiguities of mixed-descent lives, offering fresh insights into this aspect of NZ's heritage.
