"Acting editor's [Tali Folkins] note: June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada. Recognizing that colonization has affected not just this land and its Indigenous peoples, but many across the world, the Anglican Journal invited Maori priest and historian Hirini Kaa to share an update and some reflections for us".
"History and our historical narratives have been transformative here in Aoteaora over the past decades. We have become more truthful with ourselves, moving from the settler narrative of hardworking, egalitarian, fair and 'kind' communities to accepting and understanding that our society and economy was established -- and still thrives -- one the back of Maori (Indigenous) dispossession and marginalization". The author's ancestor, the Rev. Mohi Turei, "was part of Indigenous Anglican churches founded on an Indigenous worldview that read scriptures, doctrine and prayer through our own eyes and epistemologies. And that remains our challenge here in Aotearoa-New Zealand. As we begin to grapple with and discard the worst of colonization, we also begin to understand the value of these worldviews. In the context of climate change and racism, we now pursue not just decolonization but, perhaps more importantly, reindigenization". "Our church, sadly, has now fallen behind on this. After our early prophetic constitutional moves [in 1992], we have lately been recolonizing ourselves, slavishly following anything coming out of Western theological and liturgical centres. Our own Indigenous theological voice was sadly ignored during the painfully long (and yet important) discussion over human sexuality, while Western liberal and conservative forces strove for dominance".
Author "is a priest in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. He holds a PhD in history from the University of Auckland and his recently published book, 'Te Hahi Mihinare : The Maori Anglican Church' is a finalist in the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards 2021".
Written by a European-descended historian, this booklet "offers an overview of five key moments in the relationship between gospel and culture in Aotearoa New Zealand from the beginning of missionary work among the Maori on Christmas Day 1814 to the complex interactions that determine the search for identity on the part of the nation and its churches in a multicultural society on the eve of the 21st century." -- back cover.

"The pilgrims in this book have shared part of their journey with me and now do so with you. .... Each day of the week for six weeks there is an interview followed by a Bible reading, meditation or prayer -- sometimes selected by the person interviewed, sometimes by me. I have taken the liberty of contributing a number of the meditations myself, and these appear at random in the text. The book may be used by individuals and groups, and a suggested weekly format follows this introduction." -- Intro., p. iii.

Canadian delegates to a recent meeting of the Anglican Indigenous Network "identified very strongly" with the relationship Maoris have attained with the Anglican Church of New Zealand, said Rev. Laverne Jacobs.
"When members of General Synod gather this July , they will vote on an amendment that could give life to a self-determining Indigenous church within the Anglican Church of Canada". "'People often misinterpret what we're doing as an attempt expression of the church, and we are only asking for the freedom and dignity that other Anglicans already enjoy'." "The basic tenets for a self-determining Indigenous church are laid out in the document 'An Indigenous Spiritual Movement: Becoming What God Intends Us to Be', presented at Sacred Circle 2018". "'Right now we're trying to develop a ministry basically from the ground up', Indigenous Suffragan Bishop of the Northern Manitoba Area Mission Larry Beardy says. 'We need clergy on the ground, and we need clergy that are stipendiary clergy. We need to organize at the local level where our people will take over [our] own local ministries. The ministry will address a healing process for our people, from the effects of things like the residential schools and abuses within the church'." "As leader of the ISMM [Indigenous Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikoweesh], Bishop Lydia Mamakwa views the establishment of the first Indigenous diocese in 2014 as one of the earliest expressions of Indigenous self-determination within the Anglican Church of Canada". "One precedent outside of the Canadian church for Indigenous self-determination is the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia (ACANZP). Since 1992, the ACANZP has established a parallel leadership model based on three tikanga or cultural streams -- Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, each with its own primate". "The three-tikanga system, [Bishop Kito] Pikaahu says, benefits mission and evangelism. The revised constitution 'provided for the election and consecration of Maori to Maori bishoprics with their own episcopal authority, independence and jurisdiction within clearly defined boundaries. This enabled the bishops and their synods to determine their own strategic mission and ministry imperatives'."

"The Church of New Zealand inherited from the Mother Church in England the priceless possession of the Book of Common Prayer of 1662. ... In 1958 the General Synod authorised certain alternative and additional forms of worship from the Proposed Prayer Book of 1928. Apart from that our forms of worship are almost entirely as they were three centuries ago. The General Synod of 1964 passed a motion requesting the Archbishop to appoint a Commission as representative as possible of the whole Province, 'To plan and prepare a revised Book of Common Prayer, either in stages or as a whole, in the light of the needs of the Province and of contemporary liturgical developments, and, Itself, or through its delegates to prepare a Lectionary for use in the Church of this Province.' The Commission has so far concentrated its effort upon revising the service of Holy Communion. In recent times much new light has been thrown on the subject of worship as a result of Biblical and liturgical research. Successive Lambeth Conferences have recognised the implications of this, and have indicated the principles upon which the Prayer Book revision should proceed. The Liturgical Consultation of the Toronto Congress in 1963 appointed a learned commission 'to prepare recommendations for the structure of the Holy Communion service which could be taken into consideration by any Church or Province revising its Eucharistic rite, and which would both conserve the doctrinal balance of the Anglican tradition and take account of present liturgical knowledge'. These recommendations we have had before us, along with almost every proposed or actual revision throughout the Anglican Communion. We were also privileged to see the Holy Communion service proposed by the English Liturgical Commission. .... The Commission submits this Liturgy for experimental use in the Province over a period of three or four years, subject to the direction of the Bishop of any Diocese. It does so as the servant of the Church, whose members will in due course judge whether or not it is a fitting means of offering acceptable worship to God in Christ and of receiving grace in accordance with his promises". -- Intro.
