• Heke Tangata Maori in Markets and Cities
    Heke Tangata Maori in Markets and 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.

  • Ko Taranaki Te Maunga
    Ko Taranaki Te Maunga
    Parihaka was a place and an event that could be lost and found, over and over. It moved into view, then disappeared, just like the mountain.

    In 1881, over 1,500 colonial troops invaded the village of Parihaka near the Taranaki coast. Many people were expelled, buildings destroyed, and chiefs Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi were jailed.

    In this BWB Text, Rachel Buchanan tells her own, deeply personal story of Parihaka. Beginning with the death of her father, a man with affiliations to many of Taranaki’s eight iwi, she describes her connection to Taranaki, the land and mountain; and the impact of confiscation. Buchanan discusses the apologies and settlements that have taken place since te pahuatanga, the invasion of Parihaka.

  • Legends of Rotorua and the Hot Lakes
    Legends of Rotorua and the Hot Lakes
    First published in 1958, this is the classic collection of myths relating to that cradle of Maori culture, Rotorua - with relevance across New Zealand
    Rotorua is one of New Zealand's most visited cities. It is impossible to avoid the area's Maori history and, in this book, it is easy to learn about the most popular legends of the area. These include Ngatoro the Fire-Bringer, whose avoidance of fire demons left them raging underground to make the famous geyser and mudpool formations in the Rotorua area; and Hatupatu, who bravely escaped from the birdwoman, who would have him as her slave.
    A.W. Reed is renowned for his collections of Maori stories. His list of published works in this area is long and deep and his popularity has rarely waned.
    The Dennis Turner illustrations are reproduced unaltered, speaking to the era of the book's original publication, retro in their flavour but quite beautiful on close inspection.

  • Long Time Coming The Story of Ngai Tahu's Treaty Settlement Negotiations With the Crown
    Long Time Coming The Story of Ngai Tahu's Treaty Settlement Negotiations With the Crown
    The Ngai Tahu settlement, like all other Treaty of Waitangi settlements in Aotearoa New Zealand, was more a product of political compromise and expediency than measured justice. The Ngai Tahu claim, Te Kereme, spanned two centuries, from the first letter of protest to the Crown in 1849 to the final hearing by the Waitangi Tribunal between 1987 and 1989, and then the settlement in 1998. Generation after generation carried on the fight with hard work and persistence and yet, for nearly all Ngai Tahu, the result could not be called fair. The intense negotiations between the two parties, Ngai Tahu and the Crown, were led by a pair of intelligent, hard-nosed rangatira, who had a constructive but often acrimonious relationship Tipene O'Regan and the Minister of Treaty Negotiations Doug Graham but things were never that simple. The Ngai Tahu team had to answer to the communities back home and iwi members around the country. Most were strongly supportive, but others attacked them at hui, on the marae and in the media, courts and Parliament. Graham and his officials, too, had to answer to their political masters. And the general public interested Pakeha, conservationists, farmers and others had their own opinions. In this measured, comprehensive and readable account, Martin Fisher shows how, amid such strong internal and external pressures, the two sides somehow managed to negotiate one of the country's longest legal documents. A Long Time Coming tells the extraordinary, complex and compelling story of Ngai Tahu's treaty settlement negotiations with the Crown. But it also shines a light, for both Maori and Pakeha, on a crucial part of this country's history that has not, until now, been widely enough known.

  • Maori in Aotearoa New Zealand Understanding the Culture Protocols and Customs
    Maori in Aotearoa New Zealand Understanding the Culture Protocols and Customs
    Starting with the beaching of his Mataatua Bay of Plenty ancestral canoe, Buddy Mikaere provides a highly readable historical overview of Maori in New Zealand and goes on to examine the impact of a changing urban world on the traditional way of life. He describes the renaissance of Maori culture and the revival of language and traditions that were nearly lost to the past. The importance of marae and community, with tribal structure still evident in the settlement of Maori Treaty of Waitangi claims, the vitality of kapa haka and waka ama for Maori youth, the art of ta moko tattooing - all of these modern manifestations of culture are discussed and reviewed. Customs observed in formal situations, where people meet and greet one another, and at the marae where they come together to communicate and share hospitality, is described in detail, as is the tradition of burial. Photographs drawn from various sources, both historical and current, give a vivid impression of Maori traditions.
