  • Ask that Mountain the Story of Parihaka
    Ask that Mountain the Story of Parihaka
    Parihaka has become a byword for Maori refusal to yield land, culture and dignity to New Zealand's colonial government. Well after the end of the New Zealand Wars, the people of this small settlement at the foot of Mt Taranaki held out against the encroachments of Pakeha settlers in a struggle that swapped the weapons of war for the weapons of peace. Taking as their symbol the white feather, the chiefs Te Whiti and Tohu led Parihaka in one of the world's first-recorded campaigns of passive resistance. Maori ploughmen wrote its message across the settlers' pastures, and Maori fencers underlined the point by throwing barriers across the queen's highways. Withstanding repeated military action, the spirit of resistance born at Parihaka kept alive the flame of that supposedly 'dying race', the Maori. Ask That Mountain draws on official papers, settler manuscripts and oral history to give the first complete account of what took place at Parihaka. Now in its ninth edition, this seminal work was in 1995 named by the Sunday Star-Times as one of the ten most important books published in New Zealand.

  • Best of Both Worlds the Story of Elsdon Best and Tutakangahau
    Best of Both Worlds the Story of Elsdon Best and Tutakangahau
    In 1895 a meeting took place in the rugged Urewera ranges - Tuhoe country - that would have lasting effects on our views of traditional Maori society. Elsdon Best, a self-taught anthropologist and quartermaster on the road past Lake Waikaremoana, was sought out by a leading Tuhoe chief, Tutakangahau of Maungapohatu. The stories he gave to Best to be recorded for future generations are with us today. Best went on to become a noted Pakeha authority on a people he would style as the last of 'the oldtime Maori'. How much did the old man tell him? Was it freely given? Can Best's writings - so pervasive today in our understanding of Maori culture - be truly relied upon? In his unique examination of this historically significant relationship, Jeffrey Paparoa Holman poses such searching questions, further informing a vital national debate on the shared identity - and destiny - of Maori and Pakeha.

  • Haerenga Early Maori Journeys Across the Globe
    Haerenga Early Maori Journeys Across the Globe
    'Maori and Europeans were encountering one another for the first time not just along the shorelines of New Zealand but also on the streets of Melbourne, Liverpool and New York.'From the late eighteenth century, Maori travellers spread out from New Zealand across the globe. They travelled for a variety of reasons - curiosity, adventure, commerce, political missions or under duress. Most travellers eventually returned home, bringing something of their own 'new world' stories with them. These remarkable experiences of voyaging and discovery, presented here in a series of vignettes, also form part of the wider history of Maori and Pakeha encounter.

  • He Reo Wahine Maori Women's Voices from the Nineteenth Century
    He Reo Wahine Maori Women's Voices from the Nineteenth Century
    During the nineteenth century, Maori women produced letters and memoirs, wrote off to newspapers and commissioners, appeared before commissions of enquiry, gave evidence in court cases, and went to the Native Land Court to assert their rights. He Reo Wahine is a bold new introduction to the experience of Maori women in colonial New Zealand through Maori women's own words - the speeches and evidence, letters and testimonies that they left in the archive.Drawing from over 500 texts in both English and te reo Maori written by Maori women themselves, or expressing their words in the first person, He Reo Wahine explores the range and diversity of Maori women's concerns and interests, the many ways in which they engaged with colonial institutions, as well as their understanding and use of the law, legal documents, and the court system. The book both collects those sources - providing readers with substantial excerpts from letters, petitions, submissions and other documents - and interprets them. Eight chapters group texts across key themes: land sales, war, land confiscation and compensation, politics, petitions, legal encounters, religion and other private matters.Beside a large scholarship on New Zealand women's history, the historical literature on Maori women is remarkably thin. This book changes that by utilising the colonial archives to explore the feelings, thoughts and experiences of M?ori women - and their relationships to the wider world.

  • Heading Dog Who Split in Half Legends and Tall Tales from New Zealand
    Heading Dog Who Split in Half Legends and Tall Tales from New Zealand
    New Zealand has a rich--if often overlooked-- tradition of folk legends and tall tales. The Heading Dog Who Split in Half collects together some of the best of these, artfully adapted as graphic tales and complete with background notes. Together these stories conjure up the 'old, weird New Zealand': a place of phantom waka, romantic escapades in the early whaling days, magical sheepdogs and gargantuan crayfish. The book includes Pakeha, Maori and general New Zealand tales from around the country, including the poignant legend of Dunedin's Tunnel Beach, tales of Lake Tarawera's ghostly canoe, musterers' yarns from the Canterbury high country, contemporary urban myths, and more. The Heading Dog Who Split in Half uncovers a New Zealand not found in the history books, but which exists as a country of the imagination, half-familiar, half-dream. The Heading Dog Who Split in Half is a collaboration between writer Michael Brown and comics artist Mat Tait. About ten years ago, while undertaking postgraduate research into New Zealand folk music, Brown came across various local folk tales which he thought deserved to be more widely known.
    After approaching Tait, whose distinctive comics have been acclaimed in New Zealand and overseas, they began adapting these stories and soon piqued the interest of the local comics community. The result is The Heading Dog Who Split in Half, an anthology consisting mostly of previously unpublished material, which will appeal to graphic novel fans young and old, together with aficionados of Kiwi cultural history.

  • Healing Our History the Challenge of the Treaty of Waitangi
    Healing Our History the Challenge of the Treaty of Waitangi
    The Treaty of Waitangi is the most important document in New Zealand's history. Current Treaty issues and Maori/Pakeha relationships can only be understood within the wider story of New Zealand. As we understand and honour our history, we can acknowledge the need for restoration, healing and right relationships. The public response to previous editions of this bestselling book by Robert Consedine and his daughter Joanna Consedine has been strong and overwhelmingly positive. This 2012 edition updates and expands on the critical issues: the foreshore and seabed debate, Maori access to political power, and the emergence of the Maori Party; the remarkable growth of the Maori economy, self-determination, Maori language and the developments in Maori education; constitutional issues, and the benefits of the Treaty settlement process. New Zealand and all New Zealanders have much to celebrate - and many challenges ahead. Drawing on Robert's unique experience as a leading Treaty educator, the powerful message of this book illustrates how each and every New Zealander across all cultures can discover a new sense of personal and national identity, grounded in an authentic Treaty relationship.

  • Ka Ngaro Te Reo: Maori Language Under Siege in the 19th Century
    Ka Ngaro Te Reo: Maori Language Under Siege in the 19th Century
    Ka ngaro te reo, ka ngaro taua, pera i te ngaro o te moa. If the language be lost, man will be lost, as dead as the moa. In 1800, te reo Maori was the only language spoken in New Zealand. By 1899, it was on the verge of disappearing altogether. In Ka Ngaro Te Reo, Paul Moon traces the spiralling decline of the language during an era of prolonged colonisation that saw political, economic, cultural and linguistic power shifting steadily into the hands of the European core. In this revelatory and hard-hitting account, Moon draws on a vast range of published and archival material, as well as oral histories and contemporary Maori accounts, to chart the tortuous journey of a language under siege in a relentless European campaign to save and civilise the remnant of the Maori Race. He also chronicles the growing commitment among many Maori towards the end of the nineteenth century to ensure that the language would survive.

  • Kerikeri Mission and Kororipo Pa: An Entwined History
    Kerikeri Mission and Kororipo Pa: An Entwined History
    The Bay of Islands has long been occupied, beginning some 800 years ago with Maori settlement. At Kerikeri Inlet, the river gave access to fertile land for plantations and the harbour yielded plentiful seafood. Europeans found these areas equally pleasing when they began to visit in the late eighteenth century. Today, the Kerikeri basin is home to New Zealand's oldest European buildings. This book tells their story and that of the people, missionaries and Maori, who made them. The book is richly illustrated with photographs from the Kemp House and Stone Store collections of artefacts and objects once in daily use. It contains a discussion and illustrations of the store accounts, revealing details of daily life at the mission - what food, clothing, tools and other goods were available, where they came from and who used them.
