Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 36, Number 19. 2nd August 1973



Dear Sir,

In reply to Mr F. line's letter regarding his two "delinquent" Maori sons, methinks I smell the old "white man's burden."

Could I suggest that in attempting to provide a "decent Christian upbringing" for your sons that you were alienating them as far away from their own culture as it is possible, in our Maori-destroying society.

Perhaps a marae would have saved, where you thought the church would.

Yours, Diane Hooper.
