The award-winning authors of this small book with a big heart delve into Te Papa’s collections of over 1600 badges to examine how New Zealanders have used badges to join, belong, resist, defy, and celebrate. From protest groups and Girl Guides to sports clubs, animal breeds, Tino rangatiratanga sovereignty Māori, and suffrage – there has been a badge for almost every New Zealand cause and endeavor. Tiny Statements explores how we have worn these small treasures to join, belong, resist, defy, and celebrate.
