Freire at the flaxroots: analysis and action in Aotearoa
In New Zealand, I held more discussions about Pedagogy of the Oppressed … I was impressed by my discussions with indigenous leaders—with their insight, their awareness of their position of subjection and their rejection of that position, their thirst for the struggle, their non-conformity.’ 

Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of Hope: Reliving Pedagogy of the Oppressed.

This series of interviews explores the influence of Paulo Freire on people working at the flaxroots for social change in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Indigenous and non-indigenous grassroots activists talk about their social justice work, how they have been influenced by Freire and how they have used and adapted his ideas in the contexts in which they live and work.
