The Ani Waaka Room


From Taranaki poet Debbie Broughton, 'The Ani Waaka Room' is a collection of poems that celebrate the survival of Taranaki ancestors who were forced by war to leave their homelands for Te Aro Pā. The poems weave together ancestor and descendent, Taranaki and Te Aro, family stories and government atrocities.

‘The Ani Waaka Room’ is a challenge to those who ignore mana whenua in cities, and rongoā for those who know Papatūānuku breathes beneath layers of concrete.
