McAllister (anthropology, U. of Canterbury, New Zealand) examines relations between natives and descendants of settlers in celebrations of Waitangi Day in New Zealand and Australia Day in Australia, comparing the events at two sites in each country and between the two countries. He discusses New Zealand's national day and the Treaty of Waitangi, Waitangi Day as dramatic cultural performance, Waitangi Day at Okains Bay, Indigenous responses to Australia Day, redefining the nation at Lismore in northern New South Wales, and reconciliation flourishes then dies.
