Purakau  Maori Myths Retold by Maori Writers
Purakau Maori Myths Retold by Maori Writers
A lively, stimulating and engaging retelling of purakau - Maori myths - by contemporary Maori writers.

Ka mua, ka muri . . .

Ancient Maori creation myths, portrayals of larger-than-life heroes and tales of engrossing magical beings have endured through the ages. Some hail back to Hawaiki, some are firmly grounded in New Zealand and its landscape. Through countless generations, the stories have been reshaped and passed on. This new collection presents a wide range of traditional myths that have been retold by some of our best Maori wordsmiths. The writers have added their own creativity, perspectives and sometimes wonderfully unexpected twists, bringing new life and energy to these rich, spellbinding and significant taonga.

Take a fresh look at Papatuanuku, a wild ride with Maui, a creepy encounter with Ruruhi-Kerepo, for these and many more mythical figures await you.

Explore the past, from it shape the future . . .

Struggle for Maori Fishing Rights Te Ika a Maori
Struggle for Maori Fishing Rights Te Ika a Maori
Maori fishing rights were guaranteed by the Treaty of Waitangi, taken away by Crown actions, and, along with Maori land rights and other grievances, contested throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Finally, after years of struggle in the courts, through the Waitangi Tribunal and in protests, Maori fishing rights were restored. This book claims that four pou or elements significantly assisted in the recognition and eventual recovery of Maori fishing rights: The Treaty of Waitangi; the courts; The Waitangi Tribunal and the resilience and tenacity of Maori people, who never gave up fighting for what was right. The author argues that the strong tradition of fairness and justice in New Zealand society provided a platform for Maori and Pakeha to support the four pou and address the injustices that included not only a denial of Maori fishing rights but also a large number of others. The restoration of Maori fishing rights, therefore, is not an isolated event but is part of the larger picture of New Zealand society accepting that Maori had been unjustly treated since the 1840s and choosing to redress those injustices.
