  • Water Rights for Ngai Tahu
    Water Rights for Ngai Tahu
    There is perhaps no issue in New Zealand today more contentious than water rights. The Crown claims that no one owns water, but its use, irrigation and treatment are controlled by local governments empowered by the Crown. Since the 1990s resource consents for the taking of water, in Canterbury and Southland especially, have increased dramatically and the environmental situation is reaching a breaking point. After years of discussion some kind of system regarding the ownership of water is inevitable. In Water Rights for Ngai Tahu, Te Maire Tau considers the historical and political framework that has contributed to the current state of water rights in the Ngai Tahu takiwa. He explores the customary, legal and Treaty frameworks that feed into the debate regarding the ownership of water. From 1844 to 1864 the Crown purchased more than 34.5 million acres of land from Ngai Tahu, but in most purchase deeds water is not mentioned. How does this play into claims to water? Should the Treaty be relied upon? How far can kaitiakitanga take us if the goal is mana motuhake and tino rangatiratanga? In this short book Te Maire Tau lays out the historical background and context to water rights, and opens a discussion about where to proceed next in determining a Ngai Tahu position on water.

    Anyone who has been welcomed on to a marae in New Zealand, will understand that whaikorero - oratory - is at the heart of Maori culture. Whaikorero: The World of Maori Oratory is the first introduction to this fundamental Maori art to be widely published. It is based on broad research as well as oral histories from 30 of the leading exponents of whaikorero, many of whom have subsequently died. Author Poia Rewi's informants are affiliated to many iwi including Tuhoe, Ngati Kahungunu, Te Arawa, Ngati Porou, Ngati Awa, Waikato-Maniapoto, Te Whakatohea, Nga Puhi, and Ngati Whare. In Whaikorero, Poia Rewi assesses the origin and history of whaikorero; its structure, language and style of delivery; who may speak; and where speech happens. Featuring a range of samples, this handy guide provides high quality exemplars for learners and intermediate speakers of te reo Maori wishing to improve their whaikorero skills. It will be a major book for everyone interested in Maori and Polynesian cultures.

  • Whariki  the Growth of Maori Community Entrepreneurship
    Whariki the Growth of Maori Community Entrepreneurship
    Understanding what drives enterprise within an indigenous cultural space is not widely understood in New Zealand. Whariki reveals how kin-based business ventures created by Maori have promoted social, economic and environmental wellbeing from the whenua (land) up.

    Its core is eight case studies - some arising from iwi-driven ideas, some ideas from marae-based whanau. These range from a bee school in Northland, ginseng growing in the King Country, to the rehabilitation of Maori prisoners in Dunedin and a web-engaged response to accessing tribal marae.

    Always reaching into ancestral ties and lessons to provide guidance and foundation for their ideas, these businesses are wrapped in cultural approaches that engage kin communities in improving the wellbeing of their iwi, hapu and whanau. This book explores the successes, the failures, the learnings and the futures of these opportunities for Maori.

  • What's Maori About Maori Education
    What's Maori About Maori Education
    Required text EDMT 602 semester 1, 2021
    Required text EDMT 602 semester 2, 2021

    It is relatively easy to critique the New Zealand education system and show how inequalities in the treatment of Maori students have gone on for generations, to the extent that Maori justifiably perceive the system as being inherently biased against them. It is far more difficult to explain why Maori, despite their warrior heritage, persist in seeking out compromise positions with a dominant mainstream, or how they can do this without allowing a kind of refining or 'thinning out' of what it means to be Maori (what Foucault aptly refers to as 'procedures of rarefaction'). The slogan popularised in the mid-1900s, following Sir Apirana Ngata's familiar aphorism, 'E tipu e rea' - reinterpreted as 'we want the best of both worlds' - has not diminished in salience, and indeed may even have taken on a more strident note in the contemporary form 'we demand the best of all worlds'. This is a story about what it feels like to be a Maori in an education system where, for more than a century, equality, social justice and fairness for all New Zealanders has been promised but not adequately provided.
    It was not until the late 1970s and early 1980s that ordinary Maori in a few key communities throughout the country courageously stepped outside the Pakeha system and created an alternative Maori system in order to whakamana (enhance) their own interpretations of what it means to achieve equality, social justice and fairness through education. The question now is, what has the dominant mainstream education system learned about itself from the creative backlash of the Maori 'struggle for a meaningful context', and what is it going to do to address the equally important question of 'what is an education for all New Zealanders?'.
