This article seeks to establish comparability and continuity to past and present anti-Asiatic racisms in New Zealand society. In the years after 1986, the acceptance of non-European immigrants to New Zealand has drawn criticisms from both the dominant Anglo-Celtic majority in conjunction with the country’s indigenous Maori population. At a time when Asian minority subaltern existence fails to challenge the dominant discourse that has forestalled the state subvention of multiculturalism, it is hoped that this work provides conceptual clarity on the similarities and differences that exist between historical and contemporary anti-Asiatic racisms in New Zealand. There is, in other words, a shift from fears towards Asians or Orientals as an inferior ‘race’ to the current racialization involving the inscription of new forms of colonial power designed to maintain a sense of ethnocracy.
