Letters of aroha and respect, Olivia Bennett

The Art of Walking Upright
Glenn Colquhoun
Steele Roberts, $25.00,
ISBN 1877228206

“The art of walking upright here is the art of using both feet”. For many New Zealanders, the very essence of being Kiwi is being part of a community that embraces both Māori and Pākehā culture.

The Art of Walking Upright is said to be Glenn Colquhoun’s love letter to the people of Te Tii in Mangonui. This collection, he says, is “the beautiful, troubled, fertile gap between Pākehā and Māori”.
