This introduction provides an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book provides a means of exploring some of the characteristics distinctive to the colonial encounter and indigenous and migrant challenges to colonial rule in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand, Canada and South Africa. It focuses on colonial administrative structures with the emergence of settler civil society in terms of welfare policy, regional colonial administration, the development of labour unions with and part in the creation of foundational national myths. The book also focuses on the struggles over the representation of national histories through analyses of key cultural institutions and monuments, both historically and in terms of contemporary strategies. It analyses the potential roles allocated to the exhibition and display of Maori artifacts and heritage in a museum celebrating the national identity of Aotearoa New Zealand.
