In 1915, 160 Niuean men joined the New Zealand Expeditionary Force as part of the Maori Reinforcements and set sail to Auckland and then Egypt and France. Most had never left the island or worn shoes before.
Based on a museum survey and on ethnographic fieldwork with weavers originating from the Polynesian island of Niue, the author gives a detailed overview of Niuean weaving past and present.
