Donna Awatere outlines what Maori sovereignty means to her and illustrates the duplicitous nature of New Zealand monoculturalism, and the violence of British/white imperialism. She concludes that there is "no sitting on the fence. For Maori without sovereignty we are dead as a nation. It is not sovereignty or no sovereignty. It is sovereignty or nothing we have no choice".
