Abstract
William Cuthers is of Cook Islands Māori and New Zealand Māori descent. He was raised in South Auckland in the 1980s by his mother (Cuthers, 2020). William’s connections to the Cook Islands and his ancestors' involvement in the World Wars have been of particular significance for him (Cuthers, 2020; Cooper, 2020; Farrell, 2021; Lintonbon, 2020). [...] Central to William’s personal and research stories is his maternal grandfather, William Cuthers, who served as a Coastwatcher during World War II (Cuthers, 2020)
