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? A revolt, 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 which would be more honest: The Land Wars.
