Land of the Long White Cloud Series Classification: G (General Programmes) | Produced by Mint Suite | Made with the support of NZ On Air. How do white New Zealanders overcome feelings of guilt to take positive action against racism in Aotearoa? Land of the Long White Cloud is a seven-part documentary web-series that tells the stories of New Zealanders who are reflecting on their colonial heritage and white guilt, and the ways they push through to find a more healthy Pākehā identity. The Series Producers explain “This is an anti-racism conversation timed to coincide with the 250 year anniversary of Captain Cook’s arrival in Aotearoa. Racism is a white problem, and the onus is on white New Zealanders to look at ourselves.”
