Image for Kūpapa


In 1868 Lucy Takiora Lord returned to her tūrangawaewae to work alongside the militia in the Taranaki land wars. Fiercely independent and ambitious, Lucy lived a life outside the social expectations for women of the time. She was determined to define her place, to stand on her own terms... but at what cost?

Kūpapa, by Nicola Kawana, takes us into the complex world of the first generation of Māori/Pākeha wāhine who lived out their extraordinary lives, creating their own agency in the birth of a “New” Zealand.
