He Puna Kupu He Manawa aa Whenua
To know one's own language is to know oneself. So knowing your dialect is about knowing yourself, where you come from, how you are related to others and where you fit in the world.

He Puna Kupu, He Manawa aa-Whenua is the first stop for lovers and learners of Maaori language, particularly those interested in Tainui dialect. Recorded for the first time in one place, these words and phrases, drawn from Tainui contexts and used by Tainui experts, were collected specifically for Tainui descendants.

If you are an avid learner of Maaori language, or interested in learning Tainui-specific words, phrases and contexts, then this book is for you.

Ko te reo kei too arero, te reo o too ao. Noo reira ko too reo aa iwi, te reo o too ngaakau, te reo e hiiri ai koe ki ngoo whakapapa me ngoo paanga ki ngaa iwi o te motu.

Kua whakatoopuungia ngaa kupu, ngaa kiianga noo roto mai o ngaa horopaki Tainui ki te waahi kotahi hei kai maa te mata, hei kai maa te hinengaro, hei kai maa te rangatira. Noo reira kei ngaa rangatira o Tainui waka, ko teenei Puna Kupu hei Manawa aa-Whenua maa taatou katoa.

Kua roa te iwi e karanga ana kia whakaputaina he rauemi haapai i te iwi kia Tainui ake ai te rere o te reo i roto i a taatou. Noo reira i whakahuihuia e Waikato-Tainui ngaa kaumaatua me ngaa maatanga reo o ngaa roherohenga o Tainui waka whaanui kia whakaritea teenei taonga hei whakautu i taa koutou karanga.

Meenaa raanei ko koe teenaa e hiikaka ana kia Tainui ake ai too reo, e kaingaakau ana ki ngaa reo aa iwi, maau teenei rauemi, moou teenei rauemi. Tukua!

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.

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.
