About Harry Delamere Barter Dansey, MBE

Harry Delamere Barter Dansey MBE (1 November 1920 – 6 November 1979) was a New Zealand Māori journalist, cartoonist, writer, broadcaster, local-body politician, and race relations conciliator.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Dansey


‘The divided heart’, written in 1970, perhaps best sum up his ideal for racial harmony:

We would not choose to tell apart

The things we love by race or clime

For they are one within the heart;

And equal joy in them we take

That in this place by chance are set

Tall kauris of Waitakere

Or oak and elm of Somerset.

Te Ara


Harry was in the 28th New Zealand (Maori) Battalion and saw action in WWII (North Africa and Italy warfronts). His last rank was Sergeant. He was the Race Relations Conciliator, a journalist of note, and author of three books on Maori cultural matters.
