Trading Cultures: A History of the Far North

Trading Cultures is a social, economic and political history that gives fresh insights into how and why Māori and Pākehā in the far north of New Zealand traded and interacted with each other from the 1700s to the present. It explores how the far north began as a bread basket and became an economic basket by the 1990s and how Māori and Pākehā negotiated two centuries of unprecedented change.

Trading Cultures is a social, economic and political history that gives fresh insights into how and why Māori and Pākehā in the far north of New Zealand traded and interacted with each other from the 1700s to the present. It explores how the far north began as a bread basket and became an economic basket by the 1990s and how Māori and Pākehā negotiated two centuries of unprecedented change.

While on first contact trade practices between Europeans and Māori were similar, increasing settler numbers and trade led to the two economic systems colliding over differences between gift, barter and moneyed exchanges. With the depression, world wars and urban migration, far north industries collapsed. Throughout this though, social ties to the area remained strong, and with the unemployment of the 1970s people returned and an informal economy revived. This history explores the continuous social and economic engagement between immigrants to the far north and far-northern iwi during these times of change.

For those who wish to gain an extensive picture of the complexly woven relationships which have developed in the Far North across 250 years, this book stands as a 'must read'."Robin Shepherd - Northland Age
"...understanding the origins of a problem can often prove crucial in overcoming it, and in this respect Puckey's book should be required reading for all those interested in the future fate of the Far North."Vincent O'Malley - Historyworks
