Historian, anthropologist, environmentalist and leader. Dame Anne Salmond talks about her life's work.
Historian and anthropologist Dame Anne
Salmond walks in two worlds, and through her work has tried to bring
understanding of the Maori experience and how it shapes us as New Zealanders.
Her books include a biography of William Bligh, a study of Maori ceremonial
gatherings and the South Pacific voyages of James Cook. In 2013 Dame Anne, an
ardent environmentalist, was awarded the Rutherford Medal and named New
Zealander of the Year. In 2008 she was elected as a Corresponding Fellow of the
British Academy, and the following year as a Foreign Associate of the National
Academy of Sciences – the first Kiwi to achieve this double distinction.
