Abstract or Summary

Ingrid & others will show journeys of Pakeha change in coloured felt displays from a collection created by Treaty educators during her research in 2004. Imagery includes foundations of white supremacy, white mists of colonisation and individualisation, a nostalgic cultural conserve, as well as the importance of flames of passion to become part of a 'group that is changing' while continuing to struggle to 'take the Pakeha family with us'. Ingrid sees these works as 'visual theories' of decolonisation for a dominant group.
