Awatere on intellectuals



"The University is built on Maori land, by proceeds taken from Maori land. Our people died defending that land. The University therefore represents the aggression and anti-Maori people hostility of colonial invaders. For Maori people the Auckland University Centennial is no cause for joyous celebration."
