Tupuna Awa
Tupuna Awa
'We have always owned the water ...we have never ceded our mana over the river to anyone', King Tuheitia asserted in 2012. Prime Minister John Key disagreed: 'King Tuheitia's claim that M?ori have always owned New Zealand's water is just plain wrong'. So who does own the water in New Zealand - if anyone - and why does it matter? Offering some human context around that fraught question, Tupuna Awa looks at the people and politics of the Waikato River. Marama Muru-Lannning introduces us to the way M?ori of the region, the Crown and Mighty River Power have talked about water, ownership, stakeholders, guardianship and the river. Those conversations culminated in 2009 with a Deed of Settlement signed by Waikato-Tainui and the Crown that established a new co-governance structure for the Waikato River. By examining debates over water, Muru-Lanning provides a powerful lens into modern iwi politics and contests for power between M?ori and the State.

Turning the Hearts of the Children
Turning the Hearts of the Children
What inspired so many Maori in the 1880s to question the mainstream churches and flock to an American religion -- the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormon church? How did the Mormons encourage Maori leaders to pioneer the development of the Church in Aotearoa in the 20th century? Respectful and humble Mormon missionaries had a genuine love and appreciation of Maori. They learned the language, blessed children and administered to the sick, lived among the people, slept on raupo mats and ate the same food. Their church set standards that required sacrifice and commitment from converts, but unlike other missionaries, the Mormons did not reject traditional Maori socio-cultural mores. They shared reverence for family and genealogy and were guided by visions and dreams. This book discusses twelve influential men and women, all born in the 19th century, who joined the Mormon Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and became leaders. Each chapter is written by direct descendants of these rangatira, who by constructive attitude and action brought their people together and enabled them to embrace new concepts and move into a new century.

Two Worlds
Two Worlds
'Professor Salmond has written a remarkable book. Remarkable for its meticulous research, for its ability to grip the reader's attention; but most of all, remarkable that no-one has done anything quite like it before in the exploration of New Zealand history.'-Naylor Hillary, The Press Two Worlds is Anne Salmond's award-winning account of the first points of contact between Maori and European explorers. It is a provocative, penetrating examination of those dramatic first meetings, casting them in a completely new light - a work of trail-blazing significance.'The book as a whole, it must be said, is a stunningly comprehensive and polished work of scholarship that will be welcomed by academic and general readers. It is one of the most important volumes on Maori-Pakeha relations ever published and will provide a baseline from which future work in this area will be measured.'-Michael King, Metro

Whaiora Maori Health Development
Whaiora Maori Health Development
Maori health development is about the trials and discoveries of the past, the energies and initiatives of the present, and the priorities and plans for the future.
In this welcome second edition of Whaiora, Mason Durie documents progress in Maori health development over the past century, placing special emphasis on the last fifteen years. He draws connections between changes in Maori leadership, Maori political power, and government health policy. Using the twin standards of the Treaty of Waitangi and biculturalism, he examines past policies, health reforms, Maori health leadership and the major health problems currently facing Maori.
This second edition of Whaiora deserves to be widely read. It takes account of changed government objectives for Maori health and shifting Maori priorities for health development. Not only does it demolish some misleading stereotypes, but it also offers a comprehensive account of the cultural, environmental, social, economic and political factors that contribute to standards of health among Maori.

Whakapapa of Tradition One Hundred Years of Ngati Porou Carving
Whakapapa of Tradition One Hundred Years of Ngati Porou Carving
Maori carving went through a rapid evolution from 1830 to 1930. Beginning around 1830, three dominant art traditions - war canoes, decorated storehouses and chiefly houses - declined and were replaced by whare karakia (churches), whare whakairo (decorated meeting houses) and wharekai (dining halls). In A Whakapapa of Tradition, Ngarino Ellis examines how and why that fundamental transformation took place by exploring the Iwirakau school of carving - an ancestor who lived in the Waiapu Valley around 1700, Iwirakau is credited with reinvigorating carving on the East Coast. The six major carvers of his school went on to create more than thirty important meeting houses and other structures, which Ellis explores to tell this story of Ngati Porou carving and a profound transformation in Maori art. A Whakapapa of Tradition also attempts to make sense of Maori art history, exploring what makes a tradition in Maori art; how traditions begin and, conversely, how and why they cease.
Beautifully illustrated with new photography by Natalie Robertson, and drawing on the work of key scholars to make a new synthetic whole, A Whakapapa of Tradition will be a landmark volume in the history of writing about Maori art.

Whakarongo ki o Tupuna Listen to your Ancestors
Whakarongo ki o Tupuna Listen to your Ancestors
Written in Maori by a leading advocate of children's literature, this poignant story is set in a school and then rest home environment, following the life lessons passed from a teacher to her pupils, and aligning these with the example set by Maori gods and ancestors.

As the story unfolds the teacher ages and retires, and we see the beautiful and caring relationship between `Nan' and her granddaughter.

Nan passes away; we are reminded of the circular nature of life as her granddaughter begins to teach her own pupils lessons from the ancestors.

Bold illustrations accompany poetic, evocative text.

Whariki The Growth of Maori Community Entrepreneurship
Whariki The Growth of Maori Community Entrepreneurship
Understanding what drives enterprise within an indigenous cultural space is not widely understood in New Zealand. Whariki reveals how kin-based business ventures created by Maori have promoted social, economic and environmental wellbeing from the whenua (land) up.

Its core is eight case studies - some arising from iwi-driven ideas, some ideas from marae-based whanau. These range from a bee school in Northland, ginseng growing in the King Country, to the rehabilitation of Maori prisoners in Dunedin and a web-engaged response to accessing tribal marae.

Always reaching into ancestral ties and lessons to provide guidance and foundation for their ideas, these businesses are wrapped in cultural approaches that engage kin communities in improving the wellbeing of their iwi, hapu and whanau. This book explores the successes, the failures, the learnings and the futures of these opportunities for Maori.
