In this study I examine the dominant discourses represented in the print and internet media reporting of offending by Maori. The purpose of which is to analyse the dominant discourse and subject positions associated with offending by Maori. Foucault Discourse Analysis was utilised whereby the data was collected through articles printed in the New Zealand Herald and the Dominion Post. This study suggests that there are multiple and complex factors relating to Maori offending, whereby reporting about Maori offending is presented from a mainstream worldview.
