  • Struggle for Maori Fishing Rights: Te Ika a Maori
    Struggle for Maori Fishing Rights: Te Ika a Maori
    Maori fishing rights were guaranteed by the Treaty of Waitangi, taken away by Crown actions, and, along with Maori land rights and other grievances, contested throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Finally, after years of struggle in the courts, through the Waitangi Tribunal and in protests, Maori fishing rights were restored. This book claims that four pou or elements significantly assisted in the recognition and eventual recovery of Maori fishing rights: The Treaty of Waitangi; the courts; The Waitangi Tribunal and the resilience and tenacity of Maori people, who never gave up fighting for what was right. The author argues that the strong tradition of fairness and justice in New Zealand society provided a platform for Maori and Pakeha to support the four pou and address the injustices that included not only a denial of Maori fishing rights but also a large number of others. The restoration of Maori fishing rights, therefore, is not an isolated event but is part of the larger picture of New Zealand society accepting that Maori had been unjustly treated since the 1840s and choosing to redress those injustices.

    Tangata Ngai Tahu People of Ngai Tahu
    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

  • Tangata Whenua an Illustrated History
    Tangata Whenua an Illustrated History
    A landmark publication, Tangata Whenua portrays the sweep of Maori history from Pacific origins to the twenty-first century. Through narrative and images, it offers a striking overview of the past, grounded in specific localities and histories. Fifteen chapters bring together scholarship in history, archaeology, traditional narratives and oral history. Images from around the country (and from international museums) include taonga and artefacts, early European sketches and paintings along with contemporary artworks, and many photographs from collections and newspapers. Placing Maori at the centre of the country's story, Tangata Whenua begins in the Pacific and outlines early settlement in New Zealand. A second section covers the period of great change in the nineteenth century, examining how Maori communities were affected by the influx of new technology, religious ideas, trade and literacy. The history then extends forward through the twentieth century - with two world wars, the growth of an urban Maori culture, rising protest, and Treaty claims and settlements.
    At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Maori are drawing on both international connections and their ancestral place in Aotearoa. The ways in which growth and development are interwoven with tension and resistance will be evident in the future as they have been throughout the past.

  • Tauira Maori Methods of Learning and Teaching
    Tauira Maori Methods of Learning and Teaching
    Based on extensive interviews with 21 individuals, this book allows us to listen to M?ori from Northland recall the mid-20th century rural world in which they grew up. MetgeAEs work tackles important questions about M?ori teaching and learning: What was the role of whanau and hapu, household and marae, kaumatua and siblings, work and play in learning? How much learning was practical and how much by teaching? Metge shows that M?ori ways of learning flourished alongside the school system in rural Northland and that those educational practices had a particular form and philosophy. M?ori focused on learning by doing, teaching in context, learning in a group, memorising, and advancement when ready. M?ori of rural Northland imparted cultural knowledge as well as practical skills through daily life and storytelling, in whanau and community activities. Under achievement of M?ori children in state schools is often attributed to deficiencies in the childrenAEs home environment. Joan Metge presents a different view. She introduces readers to M?ori methods of teaching and learning that are rich in lessons for us all.
