              From the beginning of time in Aotearoa spirituality has been the very foundation upon which Maori culture was built. Many stories have been passed down through the ages of great feats of spiritual divinity and the Mana possessed by the Rangatira and Tohunga of many of our hapu an...d Iwi. We were all born into this world with our spirituality intact. As we progress through life, it has slowly left us and been replaced by that which society deems necessary in order for us to comply with the constraints that this new world proclaims to be progress. With the call of my Tupuna growing day by day I answered their call in order to protect my son.

              The Chinese Atlantic: Seascapes and the Theatricality of Globalization (Hardback)

              In The Chinese Atlantic, Sean Metzger breaks new ground in the study of the global exchange of culture across the Atlantic by exploring how the seascape is portrayed in theater, film, and installation art that explores the Chinese experience of migration. Metzger traces the flow ...of money, art, and culture through traditional trade routes and shows how Chinese migrants' arrival by boat influenced the communities they met and the communities they formed. With a particular focus on the Caribbean, Metzger demonstrates how this flow had a direct impact on the artistic culture of the communities which found themselves as the recipients of these waves of Chinese migrants and entrepreneurs. He interrogates central issues in the study of similar migrations from Africa and Ireland and encourages us to see that the Chinese played a similarly significant part in the shaping of globalization as we experience it today. Analyzing art that interacts directly with the sites in which it is located, Metzger explores how Chinese migrant laborers did the same to shape-both physically and culturally-the new communities in which they found themselves. In this way, Metzger encourages us to see the artistic representation of memories of migration as a new way of framing the global.
