Between Worlds
Between Worlds
'Vivid, convincing and utterly memorable.'-Michael King, North & SouthAnne Salmond's extraordinary Between Worlds begins with the arrival of Cook's second expedition in 1773 and takes the story through to 1815, with the establishment of the first British missionary settlement in the Bay of Islands. It describes Cook's second and third voyages, telling of a time when white settlers first lived on the shores of New Zealand, often joining Maori communities - the first so-called Pakeha-Maori. These Maori communities were working out their own strategies for dealing with the strangers in their midst. New ways of living began to emerge between Maori and European.Between Worlds redefines or understanding of the earliest days of Maori and European interaction and forces us to rethink New Zealand's shared history.'There is perhaps no scholar working in Oceania better equipped in knowledge, skills and sentiment to write obetween worldso history . . . That, I think, is the supreme grace of Anne Salmond's work.'-Greg Dening, Australian Historical Studies

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.

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.

Ka Ngaro Te Reo Maori Language Under Siege in the 19th Century
Ka Ngaro Te Reo Maori Language Under Siege in the 19th Century
Ka ngaro te reo, ka ngaro taua, pera i te ngaro o te moa. If the language be lost, man will be lost, as dead as the moa. In 1800, te reo Maori was the only language spoken in New Zealand. By 1899, it was on the verge of disappearing altogether. In Ka Ngaro Te Reo, Paul Moon traces the spiralling decline of the language during an era of prolonged colonisation that saw political, economic, cultural and linguistic power shifting steadily into the hands of the European core. In this revelatory and hard-hitting account, Moon draws on a vast range of published and archival material, as well as oral histories and contemporary Maori accounts, to chart the tortuous journey of a language under siege in a relentless European campaign to save and civilise the remnant of the Maori Race. He also chronicles the growing commitment among many Maori towards the end of the nineteenth century to ensure that the language would survive.

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.

Maori in Aotearoa NZ
Maori in Aotearoa NZ
Starting with the beaching of his Mataatua Bay of Plenty ancestral canoe, Buddy Mikaere provides a highly readable historical overview of Maori in New Zealand and goes on to examine the impact of a changing urban world on the traditional way of life. He describes the renaissance of Maori culture and the revival of language and traditions that were nearly lost to the past. The importance of marae and community, with tribal structure still evident in the settlement of Maori Treaty of Waitangi claims, the vitality of kapa haka and waka ama for Maori youth, the art of ta moko tattooing - all of these modern manifestations of culture are discussed and reviewed. Customs observed in formal situations, where people meet and greet one another, and at the marae where they come together to communicate and share hospitality, is described in detail, as is the tradition of burial. Photographs drawn from various sources, both historical and current, give a vivid impression of Maori traditions.
