Listen to this clip from a 2000 radio interview with the Pākehā cultural go-between Dame Anne Salmond. As a teenage university student in Auckland, Salmond met East Coast elders Eruera and Amiria Stirling, who accompanied her to the Māori ceremonial gatherings that formed the subject of her first book, Hui. Salmond was made a dame in 1995 for services to New Zealand history. Her great-grandfather, James McDonald, was also a cultural go-between and made valuable photographic and film records of Māori subjects in the early 20th century.
