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.

Whatu Kakahu Maori Cloaks
Whatu Kakahu Maori Cloaks
A CELEBRATION OF THE SCIENCE AND ART OF MAORI WEAVING, FOCUSED ON THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF MAORI CLOAKS IN THE WORLD
Weaving is more than just a product of manual skills. From the simple rourou (food basket) to the prestigious kahukiwi (kiwi feather cloak), weaving is endowed with the very essence of the spiritual values of Maori people.

This award-winning book opens the storeroom doors of the Te Papa Tongarewa Maori collections, illuminating the magnificent kakahu in those collections and the art and tradition of weaving itself.

More than fifty rare and precious kakahu are featured within this book, with glossy colour detail illustrations of each, plus historical and contextual images and graphic diagrams of weaving techniques. These are accompanied by engaging descriptions bringing together information on every cloak - its age, materials, and weaving technique with quotes from master weavers and other experts, stories of the cloaks, details of their often remarkable provenance, discussion of how the craft is being revived and issues to do with cloaks held in international museums. A full glossary, illustrated guide to cloak types, and index are included. Contemporary cloaks made with novel materials also feature.

Whitiki Whiti Whiti E Maori In the First World War
Whitiki Whiti Whiti E Maori In the First World War
This major publication about Maori participation in the First World War is written by NZ's leading Maori military historian Dr Monty Soutar, author of the award-winning Nga Tama Toa C Company, Maori Battalion. A fascinating look at the Pioneer Battalion (the Battalion created for Maori to serve) that will shed light on the reasons why some men signed on to serve, and others staunchly resisted the call to join the imperial conflict. As with Dr Soutar's first book, it combines the story of the war and the role of Maori in it, with the words and thoughts of the men themselves, as well as those back home. Over 300 images, many from family collections and not published before.

Wiremu Pere (Wi Pere) lived from 1837 to 1915, leading his tribes of Rongowhakaata and Te Aitanga a Mahaki through some of the most turbulent chapters of New Zealand history. He stood resolute against colonialism and entered parliament to stand up for his East Coast people, yet was astute in his business dealings and was compromised in the views of many Pakeha and Maori.
