    Mo tatou, a, mo ka uri a muri ake nei. For us and our children after us. Tangata Ngai Tahu remembers and celebrates the rich and diverse lives of the people of Ngai Tahu. Spanning time, geography and kaupapa, some fifty biographies bring Ngai Tahu history into the present. The people in the book have contributed to their iwi, hapu and whanau in myriad ways: here are rangatira and tohunga, community leaders, people who actively drove the Ngai Tahu Claim forward, activists and scholars, fishermen and farmers, sportspeople, weavers, musicians, and many more. All are descendants of Waitaha, Ngati Mamoe and Ngai Tahu; united by whakapapa, they are Tangata Ngai Tahu. Produced by the Ngai Tahu Archives Team to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the Ngai Tahu Deed of Settlement, the book is beautifully and generously illustrated. Hundreds of photographs have been sourced from the Ngai Tahu archive, external institutions and whanau collections. Together these images constitute a tribal family album that is a taonga tuku iho. Publication information: Te Pae Korako (the Ngai Tahu Archive Advisory Committee) has guided this publication, which is intended as the first in a series of biographical volumes. Tangata Ngai Tahu/ People of Ngai Tahu is published by Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu with Bridget Williams Books in time for the Ngai Tahu Hui-a-Iwi, 24 - 26 November 2017
