• Nga Pepeha a Nga Tipuna the Sayings of the Ancestors
    Nga Pepeha a Nga Tipuna the Sayings of the Ancestors
    This collection contains over 2500 'pepeha', or 'sayings of the ancestors', that were gathered and compiled from all over New Zealand over a 20-year period. More than just proverbs, 'pepeha' include charms, witticisms, figures of speech, and boasts, and they are featured in the formal speeches heard every day on the 'marae' and in the oral literature handed down from past generations. These expressions provide a rich source of vocabulary, using metaphor and an economy of words to show language that enriches the Maori of today.

  • Ngai Tahu Deeds a Window on New Zealand History
    Ngai Tahu Deeds a Window on New Zealand History
    Harry Evison re-examines New Zealand colonial history in the light of a number of original documents, particularly the ten Ngai Tahu deeds by which the Crown acquired Maori title to the southern half of New Zealand from 1844 to 1864. A unique feature of the book is its handsome colour reproductions of these deeds and their plans, published here for the first time. During intensive research in the Crown deeds archive, the author compiled transcripts and commentaries on the Ngai Tahu deeds and associated documents, which are included here to encourage readers to examine the images and make their own conclusions. Sixteen chapters of text provide a fresh account of the period and the key people involved. They are written in the uncluttered style that won the author the 1994 New Zealand Book Award for Non-fiction for Te Wai Pounamu: The Greenstone Island. Chapters on Maori aboriginal title and the impact of the Treaty of Waitangi and the Wakefield scheme, and the Maori policies of Governor Grey, challenge some popular assumptions about New Zealand history.
    Besides the deeds documents, the author draws on original manuscripts such as private and official letters and journals, Native Land Court minutes, and royal commission testimonies. Thus the Maori voice is heard alongside the official voice. The Ngai Tahu Deeds is intended as a manifesto for the scientific method, demonstrating the use of original primary sources to find out what probably happened in history

  • Nou Te Ao, E Hika E! Oh, the Places You'll Go! in Te Reo Maori
    Nou Te Ao, E Hika E! Oh, the Places You'll Go! in Te Reo Maori
    'Me mihi ka tika, te toa o te ra! Turou, Hawaiki! To pai! Wehi na!'

    Topa mai, taka mai, ko nga piki me nga heke o te ao o te tangata te aronga nui o tenei korero reka na te matanga, na Dr. Seuss. He kupu akiaki kei roto e maumahara ai te tangata ki ona painga, e mataara ai ki nga uauatanga, me te toro matatoa atu ki te ao e tawhiri mai ana.

    'He koi koe a-runga. He kama a-raro. He kakano koe e kore e ngaro.'

    I Nou te Ao, e Hika e!, kua mau i a Karena Kelly te paki, te toi, te taki me te koi o Seuss, e mohio whanuitia ana, i tana tarai i te kupu hei reo Maori mo te pakiwaitara rongonui nei.


    'Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to great places ! You're off and away!'

    From soaring high-flyers to lurches and slumps, Dr. Seuss's wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You'll Go! speaks to the ups and downs of life. It encourages us all to remember our strengths, recognise the challenges, and grab life with both hands.

    'You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.'

    In Nou te Ao, e Hika e!, Karena Kelly brilliantly captures Seuss's verbal wit and wisdom, and his trademark rhythm and rhyme, while finding this great story its Maori voice.

  • Polynesian Island Myths
    Polynesian Island Myths
    The Polynesian triangle covers Easter Island, Hawaii, New Zealand and the many isles in between. The legends of the region are based on the creation of land, fish, sea, valleys and the volcanic outcrops scattered across the long stretches of the Pacific. The beautiful myths of the ancient Polynesians are brought together in this new collection: from Hawaii the Rainbow Maiden of Manoa undulates through the valleys and rainbow mists; the creator Maui releases his fish hooks into the sea to raise the islands to the surface; and tales of Pele the Fire Goddess, who hurls fountains of molten rock into the air creating vast flows of lava. From the Maori of New Zealand come the strange fruit of darkness, the tales of Tiki and the Great Mother from whom the gods descend, then humankind. And from Polynesia, more legends of Maui creating the ancestors, and Hina the moon goddess. Such myth-making joy creates a rare unity in diversity as the ancient Polynesians strove to explain the beauty and darkness of their lush ocean worlds, now offered in this new selection of myths and legends. AUTHOR: Jackson is General Editor of The World's Greatest Myths and Legends series, with titles including 'Myths of Babylon', 'Indian Myth', 'Egyptian Myth', 'Norse Myth' and 'Polynesian Island Myth'. He is editor of 'Myths and Legends' and foreword writer for 'Celtic Myths and Tales'. Other related work includes articles on the Philosophy of Time, 'Macbeth, A Gothic Chaos' and William Blake's use of mythology in his visionary literature. 10 illustrations

  • Pou Ma Rama
    Pou Ma Rama
    Is New Zealand ready to not just tick the Treaty partnership box, but actually open it and accept that Maori community-driven world views concerning their whenua is equally valid science, capable of underpinning, guiding and reshaping agricultural science and farming practices?

    This book calls for political action: the urgent need for a ‘lighthouse of understanding’ – Pou Marama – in which the Crown’s agricultural research realigns itself with tikanga and works with Maori communities to regenerate the ailing whenua. Paul Tapsell investigates government engagement with Maori farming practices and calls for a critical shift in thinking to embrace Maori approaches to resource management and harvesting.
