Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book argues for an important shift in cultural heritage conservation, away from a focus on maintaining the physical fabric of material culture toward the impact that conservation work has on people's lives. In doing so, it challenges the commodification of sacred objects and places by western conservation thought and attempts to decolonize conservation practice. To do so, the authors examine conservation activities at Maori marae--meeting houses--located in the US, Germany, and England and contrasts them with changes in marae conservation in New Zealand. A key case study is the Hinemihi meeting house, transported to England in the 1890s where it was treated as a curiosity by visitors to Clandon Park for over a century, and more recently as a focal point of cultural activity for UK Maori communities. Recent efforts to include various Maori stakeholder communities in the care of this sacred structure is a key example of community based conservation that can be replicated in heritage practice around the world.

Includes bibliographical references (p. [247]-262) and index.

CHOICE Review

What an esoteric title: who but a few will be interested? Anyone concerned with the practicalities of conserving tangible cultural heritage, whatever the sort or origin; anyone engaged in debates about intercultural representation. Sully asserts that in "caring for the material past, it is possible to 'other' ourselves," with a goal "to liberate Western conservation from its Eurocentric constraints." "Participatory conservation" makes possible this double focus on Maori material culture as presently understood by Maori themselves, and on the assumptions and practices of non-Maori museum professionals outside New Zealand. Detailed case studies explain contexts of meeting houses through histories both Maori and English, along with the rationales of the houses' colonial expatriation. Great respect is shown for these "treasured things" for "heritage is not static," and senses of cultural continuity and change must be grasped. Meeting houses are alive, named, and female, even when transported to Victorian England as the "garden folly" of a British lord. To Maori, Hinemihi, as one such is known, remains a powerful "living person" with much to tell, though she sits in Clandon Park. Her conservation becomes complex performance practice.
