After the protests and land marches of the seventies, and the devastating financial reforms in the eighties, Māori communities reached a crisis point.


In the nineties, through the development of kaupapa Māori institutions, Māori businesses, cultural revival and Waitangi treaty claims, positive signs of recovery emerged. Utilising documentary footage, Haunui Royal examines key themes arising from that period and some of the personal stories behind this renaissance.
