    Maori Meeting House Introducing the Whare Whakairo
    This all-new introductory guide to the whare whakairo, or Maori meeting house, covers every aspect of these magnificent taonga (treasures) - their history and evolution, structure and art forms, symbolism and cultural power. Generously illustrated with over a hundred intriguing historical and contemporary photographs, and containing original watercolour illustrations and a helpful glossary, the book clearly illustrates the parts - and the arts - of the whare whakairo, with reference to numerous houses from all over Aotearoa New Zealand and the world. In accessible and engaging text across three concise chapters, Damian Skinner brings together existing scholarship on whare whakairo with his own reflections as a Pakeha art historian and curator. He weaves in the voices of many carvers, artists, architects, writers, experts and iwi to give every reader new ways of seeing these taonga - whether it is their first visit or their hundredth. Equal parts informative history, personal essay and illustrated guidebook, The Maori Meeting House makes an important contribution to contemporary discussions about indigenous art history and taonga Maori.

  • 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.

  • Outcasts of the Gods The Struggle Over Slavery in Maori New Zealand
    Outcasts of the Gods The Struggle Over Slavery in Maori New Zealand
    Tracing ideas of freedom and unfreedom in Maori society, this book is the first history of Maori war captives. 'Us Maoris used to practise slavery just like them poor Negroes had to endure in America...' says Beth Heke in Once Were Warriors. 'Oh those evil colonials who destroyed Maori culture by ending slavery and cannibalism while increasing the life expectancy,' wrote a sarcastic blogger recently. So was Maori slavery 'just like' the experience of Africans in the Americas and were British missionaries or colonial administrators responsible for ending the practice? What was the nature of freedom and unfreedom in Maori society and how did that intersect with British colonists and the anti-slavery movement? This book is the first history of Maori war captives. Drawing on Maori oral sources as well the records of colonists, Petrie analyses freedom and unfreedom in traditional Maori society; the role of economics and mana in shaping captivity; and how the arrival of colonists, trade and war transformed Maori society and the place of captives.
