Abstract/Summary The story of contact between Indigenous 1 and colonising groups echoes across many geographical contexts, including Australia and New Zealand. Here, as elsewhere, the story has moved from initial contact, mutual curiosity and cooperation to confl ict and loss which has encompassed land, sovereignty, language, culture, identity and life itself (Kersey, 2002 ; Marker, 2003 ) . The losses continue today with the fi rst peoples of both Australia and New Zealand amongst the most disadvantaged peoples nationally. Their populations form a small minority; they have lower life expectancies, lower levels of education, higher imprisonment rates and higher levels of unemployment than non-Indigenous people (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2010a, 2010b ; New Zealand Ministry of Health/Manatū Hauora, 2010 ; New Zealand Ministry of Justice/Tāhū o te Ture, 2009 ) . Indigenous people continue to struggle for recognition, for their land, for compensation, and for structural change that will address their disadvantage.
