  • Marae a Journey Around New Zealand's Meeting Houses
    Marae a Journey Around New Zealand's Meeting Houses
    A magnificent documentation of and tribute to New Zealand's wharenui, big and small. Bishop Muru Walters is a very well known Anglican minister. He is also a master carver, poet, broadcaster and former Maori All Black. His son Robin is a photographer and filmmaker who is director at Curious Films. Sam Walters, Robin's wife, is a photographer. Together the Walters spent three years visiting some of this country's major meeting houses as well as many of the more humble ones - houses that serve smaller hapu and iwi - to bring together a beautiful photographic book on the meeting house. They are intensively photographed, with detailed shots of their carvings, kowhaiwhai panels, tukutuku panels and much more. Many are photographed during an event, the images conveying a rich sense of life and activity. From north to south, from the east coast to the west, and from ancient wharenui to bold new designs, this handsome book, with its engaging personal text, captures the huge variety of New Zealand's original architecture. It's a book for all New Zealanders to treasure.

  • Matamua Ko Te Kupu Te Korero O Te Waiata Maori
    Matamua Ko Te Kupu Te Korero O Te Waiata Maori
    Ko Ta Timoti Karetu tetahi o nga tohunga reo Maori o te motu - ko ia te kaiarataki i Te Taura Whiri i Te Reo Maori, i Te Mangai Paho, i Te Kohanga Reo tae atu ki Te Panekiretanga o Te Reo, i whai ra ki te whakawhanake i nga uri matatau o nga iwi o te motu kia matatau ke atu. I te ao haka, he kaitito, he kaihaka, he kaiako, he kaiwhakawa, he kaiarahi, he matanga hoki ia.

    I tenei pukapuka ana, ka whakatakoto a Ta Timoti i te whanuitanga o ana wheako e pa ana ki te haka me te waiata - mai i nga waiata o nga pakanga o te ao e rua ki te aranga mai o nga whakataetae kapa haka, mai i te waiata aroha ki te waiata a-ringa, mai i a Ta Apirana Ngata titonga ki a Te Puea Herangi, mai i te atamira o Te Matatini ki nga hui o te wa i te marae atea. Puta noa i te pukapuka, ka horahia e ia nga kupu o nga waiata me nga haka, ka whakamaramahia hoki nga kaupapa me nga horopaki mo tena, mo tena, ka mutu, no hea ia e peua i tana whakaaro kia Matamua ko te Kupu!

    He mea tuhi te pukapuka nei ki te reo Maori kairangi tonu hei pataka mo te matauranga me te reo Maori.

    Sir Timoti Karetu is one of the country's leading exponents of te reo Maori -- from leading the Maori Language Commission to producing a new generation of language experts through his teaching at Te Panekiretanga. He is also an unrivalled creator of waiata and haka, composing songs and judging at Te Matatini and other events.

    In this book, Sir Timoti shares his extensive experience in the artforms of haka and waiata - from Maori songs of the two world wars to the rise of kapa haka competitions, from love songs to action songs, from Sir Apirana Ngata to Te Puea Herangi, and from Te Matatini to contemporary hui on marae. Throughout the book, he draws on exemplars of Maori song and haka, explaining form and meanings, maintaining his stance that Lyric is Paramount!

    Written in exemplary te reo Maori, Matamua ko te Kupu! will become a taonga of Maori knowledge and language.

  • Matariki Te Whetu O Te Tau
    Matariki Te Whetu O Te Tau
    In mid-winter, Matariki rises in the pre-dawn sky, and its observation is celebrated with incantations on hilltops at dawn, balls, exhibitions, dinners and a vast number of events. The Matariki tradition has been re-established, and its regeneration coincides with a growing interest in Maori astronomy.

    Still, there remain some unanswered questions about how Matariki was traditionally observed. These include: What is Matariki? Why did Maori observe Matariki? How did Maori traditionally celebrate Matariki? When and how should Matariki be celebrated?

    Based on research and interviews with Maori experts, this book seeks answers to these questions and explores what Matariki was in a traditional sense so it can be understood and celebrated in our modern society.

  • Mauri Ora
    Mauri Ora
    Pearls of wisdom contained in proverbs - whakatauk I - have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Maori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they surprise, engendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri Ora links whakatauk I to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues - wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief - stem from the science of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life. Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Maori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.
