In 1989 my friend Leslie Parr, in frustration at the rather trite comments of a seminar speaker about our need to become bicultural, leaned over and whispered in my ear "I've been bicultural all my life, and that's a long time". She was right, Maori are already likely to be bicultural. It is we Pakeha - New Zealanders of European extraction - who have to become bicultural. Leslie died three years ago. This paper is for her.
