National days and the politics of indigenous and local identities in Australia and New Zealand
Publication Date: 2012
This book is a comparative study of national days in Australia and New Zealand which places the emphasis on local and indigenous variants of these events. Based on multi-sited ethnographic research, the study shows how Australia Day and Waitangi Day are perceived, affected, resisted, rejected or adapted by indigenous minorities in the two countries, and how they are subjected to variation, modification and interpretation at the local level, outside of the main venues for national celebration.
