Next year will be the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook's arrival and a number of events are being organised to celebrate this. Glenis Philib-Barbara nō Te Tai Rawhiti is helping to complexify the arrival narrative and offer more educational based events. Lillian Hanly spoke with her about her work to include recognition of the region’s pre-European history, and that using the word ‘discovered’ when it comes to Cook and Aotearoa is not something she gels with.
