Seminar Video: Killing Demons and Cultural Collisions

A Te Tumu Seminar by Megan Pōtiki, 16 July 2014.

“Killing Demons” is the title of a detailed account of tapu clearing activities that occurred at Ōtākou in 1865.  The diary extract was written by H.K. Taiaroa.  This account is an incredible example of a collision of fundamentally different religious beliefs.  Christianity and Christian prayer meets one of the significant Māori demi gods.
