'The events that took place in and around Parihaka particularly from about 1860 to 1900 have affected the political, cultural and spiritual dynamics of the entire country' - Human Rights Commission, 2010 The 'colonial invasion' of Parihaka in 1881 and the arrest of its self-styled 'prophets' Te Whiti and Tohu, have become a major part of the New Zealand narrative that has been revised to inculcate a guilt complex into European, especially British-descended, New Zealanders in the interests of tribal agendas. As such, the Parihaka legend ranks alongside America's 'Wounded Knee' and South Africa's 'Sharpeville' as part of a world-wide offensive against the past, present and future of European descended peoples. Over the past forty-years or so, we in New Zealand have watched our history being systematically re-invented, not based upon documented evidence of real-events that actually occurred on the ground, but solely to serve a modern-day need for made-to-order propaganda. One of the foremost of the churned-out, manufactured-myths surrounds the mid-19th century creation of a cultist-community called 'Parihaka', now represented, in typical Marxist-speak, as some kind of a Gandhi inspiring bastion of righteousness and passive-resistance against imperialist tyranny. Dr Kerry Bolton delves deeply into the huge body of extant historical documentation, contemporary to Parihaka's founding prophet, and lays the entire, lame-fantasy bare for all to see. What has been emotively bantered-about as New Zealand's 'Holocaust' or 'Genocide' at Parihaka, due to the very belated intervention by troops of a long-suffering government, renders-down to little more than a Maori boy with a sore foot, after it was trodden on by a horse. Martin Doutre - Archaeological-surveyor, researcher, author of Ancient Celtic New Zealand and The Littlewood Treaty. Having over half a century of hands-on experience with regard to the true early history of this country I find your book very exciting, very well researched, and a constructive history of the events of the time. Noel Hilliam - Former Director Dargaville Museum, New Zealand.
