By Their Fruits You Will Know Them
By Their Fruits You Will Know Them
This book follows Turning the Hearts of the Children, exploring why so many Maori in the 1880s were inspired to question the mainstream churches and flock to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormon church. Once again each chapter is written by direct descendants of a further twelve influential men and women, mostly born in the 19th century, who joined the Mormon Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and became leaders.
Selwyn Katene's introduction captures the relevance of these stories in the 21st century:
I hope that this book will encourage those who aspire to follow in the footsteps of these Maori leaders by daring greatly, challenging the status quo, inspiring a shared vision, modelling the appropriate behaviours, and
`taking the people with them' along the journey to leadership success.

Galleries of Maoriland Artists Collectors & the Maori World 1880 To 1910
Galleries of Maoriland Artists Collectors & the Maori World 1880 To 1910
Galleries of Maoriland introduces us to the many ways in which Pakeha discovered, created, propagated and romanticised the Maori world at the turn of the century - in the paintings of Lindauer and Goldie, among artists, patrons, collectors and audiences; inside the Polynesian Society and the Dominion Museum; among stolen artefacts and fantastical accounts of the Maori past.

The culture of Maoriland was a Pakeha creation. But Galleries of Maoriland shows that Maori were not merely passive victims: they too had a stake in this process of romanticisation. What, this book asks, were some of the Maori purposes that were served by curio displays, portrait collections, and the wider ethnological culture? Why did the idealisation of an ancient Maori world, which obsessed ethnological inquirers and artists alike, appeal also to Maori? Who precisely were the Maori participants in this culture, and what were their motives?

Galleries of Maoriland looks at Maori prehistory in Pakeha art; the enthusiasm of Pakeha and Maori for portraiture and recreations of ancient life; the trade in Maori curios; and the international exhibition of this colonial culture. By illuminating New Zealand's artistic and ethnographic economy at the turn of the twentieth century, this book provides a new understanding of our art and our culture.

He Kupu Tuku Iho Ko te Reo Maori te Tatu ki te Ao
He Kupu Tuku Iho Ko te Reo Maori te Tatu ki te Ao
Sir Timoti Karetu and Dr Wharehuia Milroy are widely recognised as two of New Zealand's leading teachers and scholars of Maori language and culture. They both taught at The University of Waikato from the 1970s and pursued an innovative approach by teaching language courses in te reo Maori, with tikanga courses taught in Maori and English. Te Wharehuia and Timoti were pioneers in this area, forging a model for teaching Maori which is now followed by many other tertiary institutions.

This is a book of chapters on key aspects of Maori language and culture authored by two of this country's pre-eminent kaumatua. The authors discuss key cultural concepts (including mana, tapu, wairua, whakapapa, ritual, farewell speeches and Maori humour) as well as language and cultural issues of the modern world. The language used is an exemplar for learners and speakers of te reo Maori. With assistance from a team at Te Ipukarea, the National Maori Language Institute, who transcribed and edited structured conversations between these two kaumatua, this book preserves the voices and ideas of these two renowned scholars for present and future generations.

Heke Tangata Maori in Markets & Cities
Heke Tangata Maori in Markets & Cities
Heke Tangata can broadly be translated as `migration of the people', and in this book economist Brian Easton tracks the major relocations Maori have made into the cities and market economy since 1945.
The book's first part provides a narrative of the post-war Maori experience while the second part gives the statistical basis, covering areas including criminal justice, demography, education, employment, health, housing, incomes and wealth. The picture that emerges is stark: Maori remain a generation behind Pakeha in economic well-being.
Concise, impartial and pulling no punches, Heke Tangata represents a core text for policy discussion and general understanding of Maori economic participation in contemporary Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Ko Rongowhakaata Ruku I Te Po Ruku I Te Ao  The Story of Light & Shadow
Ko Rongowhakaata Ruku I Te Po Ruku I Te Ao The Story of Light & Shadow
This book is published to mark the opening of the Ko Rongowhakaata: The Story of Light and Shadow exhibition at Te Papa, which represents the culmination and breadth of Rongowhakaata history and whakaaro (considerations) and has the significant meeting house Te Hau ki Turanga as its central statement of identity and aspiration. The book showcases more than 60 Rongowhakaata taonga, and its text, in English and te reo Maori, focuses on key threads including innovation and kaitiekitanga (sustainable processes). It also explores layers of encounter within Turanga - Rongowhakaata and Gisborne iwi first encountered the British in 1769, during Captain Cook's arrival in Poverty Bay - and the impacts of those encounters on the shape and position of the iwi, and indeed modern New Zealand, today.

Last Maopo The Life & First World War Sacrifice of Wiremu Maopo
Last Maopo The Life & First World War Sacrifice of Wiremu Maopo
The incredible, moving story of Wiremu Maopo, the last of his line in an eminent South Island family, who joined the second Maori Contingent and went off to fight in the First World War. Wiremu writes regularly to his friend Virgie, and the story of Wiremu's life is woven around 40 letters that he penned during the War. All of Wiremu's siblings died of illness either in childhood or later in life and when he returns from the war ironically he is the only surviving member of the once large family. Wiremu was unaware during and after the war that his girlfriend Phoebe had given birth to a daughter who would carry on his line. The Last Maopo also follows Phoebe's story and reconnects the Maopo line with the author, Wiremu's great-granddaughter.
