Summary 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 Hinemih.
