Summary This chapter focuses on Isabel Peacocke’s The Runaway Princess (1929) and Mona Tracy’s short story collection, Piriki’s Princess and Other Stories of New Zealand (1925), which incorporates a swathe of princesses, Māori and Pākehā. The princesses to be discussed in this chapter occupy liminal states: between Māori and Pākehā, child and adult, individual and collective subjects. Whether Māori and Pākehā, they figure in narratives of identity-formation that implicitly or explicitly incorporated comparisons between Māori and Pākehā. This chapter tracks this continuum of representations working from Māori to Pākehā and beginning with two Māori princesses who feature in Tracy’s stories ‘A Deserted Settlement’ and ‘Four Tons of Flax’.
