Depends on who is doing the talking, or the writing.
That old book cover reads
Narrative of the Indian Revolt
I wonder how the Indians would write it? Revolting, or a move to regain lost freedoms?
Here we were brought up with the history of New Zealand coloured with the 'Maori Wars'. Not the title is more honest: The Land Wars

Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
Surf Highway, Coastal Taranaki, New Zealand
