All Blacks Dont Cry
All Blacks Dont Cry

'At my worst moments, I lost all sense of hope for the future. As I began to slowly get better, I began to be able to say to myself, 'This will pass, you'll get through this. Hang on to hope.'

John Kirwan was one of the most devastating wingers New Zealand, and world, rugby had ever seen. A prominent and revered figure at the dawn of the professional age of rugby, he seemed to live a charmed life.

Nobody knew, though, that behind closed doors 'JK' was living a life of tormented fear. Afflicted with depression for many years - including those as a high-profile sportsman - Kirwan was able to survive by reaching out, seeking help f

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.

Hare Pota me te Whatu Manapou Harry Potter & the Philosophers Stone in te reo Maori
Hare Pota me te Whatu Manapou Harry Potter & the Philosophers Stone in te reo Maori
No te huringa o te kopaki, i tana ringa e wiri ana, ka kite iho a Hare i tetahi hiri-wakihi waiporoporo e whakaatu ana i tetahi tohu kawai; he raiona, he ikara, he patiha me tetahi nakahi e karapoti ana i tetahi pu 'H' e rahi ana.

Kaore ano a Hare Pota i paku rongo korero e pa ana ki Howata i te taenga haeretanga o nga reta ki a Mita H. Pota, i Te Kapata i raro i nga Arapiki, i te 4 o te Ara o Piriweti. He mea tuhi ki te wai kanapanapa i runga i te kirihipi ahua kowhai nei, i tere ra te kohakina e nga matua keke wetiweti o Hare, e nga Tuhiri. Heoi, i te huringa tau tekau ma tahi o Hare, ka papa mai tetahi tangata hitawe ake nei, a Rupehu Hakiri, me etahi korero whakamiharo: he kirimatarau a Hare Pota, a, kua whai turanga ia ki Te Kura Matarau o Howata.

I te pukapuka tuatahi o nga tino korero ma nga tamariki a mohoa nei, ka whakamohio a Rana ratou ko Heremaiani, ko Tamaratoa, ko Ahorangi Makonara i a Hare me te kaipanui ki te Kuitiki me Tera-e-Mohiotia-ra, ki te whainga o te matarau me te oha mai i mua. I te whakaawenga o te whakawhitia ki te reo Maori e Leon Blake, ka timata te korero i konei.

Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'.

Harry Potter had never even heard of Hogwarts when letters started arriving for Mr H. Potter, The Cupboard under the Stairs, 4 Privet Drive. In emerald-green ink on yellowish parchment, they were swiftly confiscated by Harry's grisly aunt and uncle the Dursleys. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid burst in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In the first volume of one of the greatest children's stories of all time, Ron and Hermione, Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall introduce Harry and the reader to Quidditch and You-Know-Who, to the promise of magic and the inheritence of the past. Now inspirationally translated into te reo Maori by Leon Blake, the story starts here.
