Nursing and Cultural Safety: A Student's Perspective and New-Found Sense of Belonging


Reflection One would think that never having been on a marae before, a skinny 'white boy1 from Porirua might feel uneasy about setting foot upon sacred Maori ground and within the boundaries of a culture that the media portrays at times as radical. [...] the damage has been done, and although the return of Maori land, and financial recompense, will go some ways to repair past ills, the loss of mana experienced by many iwi as a result of land loss and pollution will take a long time to completely forgive.
