    Title: Always Song in the Water: An Oceanic Sketchbook
    Author: O'BRIEN GREGORY

    Beginning in Northland and heading into the blue beyond, Always Song in the Water is a book of encounters and epiphanies, a dinghy ride through New Zealand's oceanic imagination.Every spring on Gregory O'Brien's front lawn, on a ridgetop in Hataitai, an upside-down dinghy blooms with flowering clematis. In this book, O'Brien takes his metaphorical dinghy to the edges of New Zealand - starting with a road trip through Northland and then voyaging out into the Pacific, to lead us into some under-explored territories of the South Pacific imagination.With creative spirits such as Janet Frame, Ralph Hotere, Robin White, John Pule and Epeli Hau'ofa as touchstones, O'Brien suggests how we New Zealanders might be re-imagining ourselves as an oceanic people on a small island in a big piece of water.Always Song in the Water is a book of encounters, sightings and unexpected epiphanies. It is a high-spirited, personal and inventive account of being alive at the outer extremities of Aotearoa New Zealand. 'This is my field notebook, my voyaging logbook,' Gregory O'Brien writes, 'this is my Schubert played on a barrel organ, my whale survey, my songbook.'Among the many artists whose work is featured are John Pule, Robin White, Phil Dadson, Fiona Hall, Euan Macleod, Laurence Aberhart and the Sydney-based painter Noel McKenna, who produced numerous works specifically for this book.

Now in its eagerly awaited second edition, published in New Zealand by Otago University Press, this bestselling book has been substantially revised, with new case-studies and examples and important additions on new indigenous literature, and the role of research in indigenous struggles for social justice, which brings this essential volume urgently up-to-date.

    Title: Encircled Lands: Te Urewera 1820-1921
    Author: BINNEY JUDITH

    For Europeans during the nineteenth century, the Urewera was a remote and savagely enticing wilderness; for those who lived there, it was a sheltering heartland. This history documents the first hundred years of the ""Rohe Potae"" (the 'encircled lands' of the Urewera) following European contact. Early in the period the terrain was criss-crossed by missionaries and (from 1866) by government troops. In 1866-67 large areas were taken by confiscation of forced cession. At the end of the fighting in 1872, by the agreed terms of peace, the Urerewa became an autonomous district, governed by its own leaders. It's existence as a separate tribal district was formally ratified in 1896.

    Title: Huia Come Home
    Author: RUKA JAY

    Once the sacred guardian of New Zealand¿s native forests, the huia was a symbol of the land¿s unique beauty and spirituality. The rare bird¿s tragic extinction in the early 1900s represents a shot to the heart of Aotearoa and is a potent metaphor for a country¿s conflicted history. Using the story of the untimely extinction of the huia, Jay Ruka offers a fresh perspective on the narrative of Aotearoa; a tale of two cultures, warring worldviews, and the things we lost in translation. Revisiting the early missionaries, the transformative message of the gospel and the cultural missteps of the Treaty of Waitangi, Huia Come Home invites us to reconnect with the unique story offered by the indigenous Maori lens.

    Title: International Indigenous Rights in Aotearoa NZ
    Author: ERUETI ANDREW

    Notwithstanding the progress made through all the tribunal reports and court cases from the 1980s, and the consequential changes in legislation and official policy, I would still rank the day that New Zealand gave support to the Declaration as the most significant day, in advancing Maori rights, since 6th February 1840.

    —Sir Edward Taihakurei Durie

    Over the past four decades, international indigenous rights have become a prominent aspect of international law and are now enshrined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Yet, while endorsed by Aotearoa New Zealand in 2010, little remains known about how these standards came about, how the international movement that created them was established, and the implications of these standards on national reforms already protecting Maori rights.

    International Indigenous Rights in Aotearoa New Zealand seeks to answer these questions. This collection of essays places the Declaration in the context of New Zealand rights around such issues as Treaty settlements, mining policy and the status of Maori children. Crucially, it also asks how Maori can hold New Zealand to account against international indigenous rights.

    Andrew Erueti lectures in indigenous and Maori rights at the Law Faculty of the University of Auckland. Prior to joining the faculty, he was the adviser to Amnesty International on indigenous rights and has worked with Maori and other indigenous communities in advancing their rights through various UN and regional human rights treaty bodies.

    Ka Mate Ka Ora: Spirit of Te Rauparaha
    ISBN: 9781877448362
    Title: Ka Mate Ka Ora: Spirit of Te Rauparaha
    Author: COLLINS HENI

    The story of Te Rauparaha and his times continues to intrigue, provoke and inspire Maori and Pakeha alike. Heni Collins describes Te Rauparaha's life from the time his birth was foretold, through inter-tribal conflict, migration, settlement in the south (Kapiti Island), and into the period of colonization. Te Rauparaha and his nephew Te Rangihaeata welcomed Europeans living among them in the 1820s and 1830s, for the trade and technology they brought. But they never gave up their rangatiratanga or mana whenua. They tried European systems of justice such as the courts and the Land Commission, but were soon frustrated by the ponderous processes and toothlessness of these bodies. To retain their independence and authority, Ngati Toa eventually turned to military resistance. Reappraising original material, including sources in te reo, Heni Collins enlivens events and adds cultural understanding and authenticity to a dramatic story of Aotearoa New Zealand. Ka Mate, Ka Ora! The Spirit of Te Rauparaha includes comments by kaumatua Te Puoho Katene and other tribal members, and an epilogue by former Maori All Black Norm Hewitt. New maps show the location of significant sites, and an appendix details their history and what can be seen there today. The spirit of Te Rauparaha lives on every time his Ka Mate haka is performed, and his story and example are as vital today as they were in his lifetime.

    Title: Ka Ngaro Te Reo: Maori Language Under Siege in the Nineteenth Century
    Author: MOON PAUL

    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 civilize 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.

    Author: NGATA TINA; EDITED BY MORSE VALERIE

    Tina Ngata's book of critical essays sets out to examine the decision by the New Zealand government to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the arrival of Captain James Cook and the implications of that decision both for Maori and for the wider global struggle against colonialism. Analysing these thinly veiled celebrations alongside the role of the Doctrine of Discovery while charting Cook's crime spree of murder, rape and pillage, Ngata urgently calls for a practice ethical remembering that requires unlearning the falsehoods of "exploration" and "discovery" and coming to terms with the horrifying reality of ongoing colonisation.

    Title: Ko Tautoro, Te Pito O Toku Ao: A Ngapuhi Narrative
    Author: SADLER HONE

    Ngapuhi is the largest iwi in New Zealand and has occupied the northern North Island, from Tamaki in the south to Te Rerenga Wairua in the north, from the time of their arrival from Hawaiki. Ko Tautoro, Te pito o Toku Ao is Ngapuhi elder Hone Sadler's powerful account of the origins, history and culture of the Ngapuhi people - a profound introduction to the Sacred House of Puhi. Sadler illustrates the unbroken chain of Ngapuhi sovereignty by looking in-depth at his own hapu of Ngati Moerewa, Ngati Rangi and Ngai Tawake ki te Waoku of Tautoro and Mataraua. The narrative is told through weaving together karakia and whakapapa, histories and korero that have been part of the oral traditions of Ngapuhi's whanau, hapu and iwi and handed down through the generations on marae and other gathering places. Presented first to open the Ngapuhi's claim before the Waitangi Tribunal, Sadler's narrative is a powerful Maori oral account, presented here in Maori and English on facing pages, of the story of New Zealand's largest iwi.

    Maori oral tradition is the rich, poetic record of the past handed down by voice over generations through whakapapa, whakatauk?, k'rero and waiata. In genealogies and sayings, histories, stories and songs, M'ori tell of `te ao tawhito¿ or the old world: the gods, the migration of the Polynesian ancestors from Hawaiki and life here in Aotearoa. A voice from the past, today this remarkable record underpins the speeches, songs and prayers performed on marae and the teaching of tribal genealogies and histories. Indeed, the oral tradition underpins M'ori culture itself. This book introduces readers to the distinctive oral style and language of the traditional compositions, acknowledges the skills of the composers of old and explores the meaning of their striking imagery and figurative language. And it shows how ng? k'rero tuku iho ¿ the inherited words ¿ can be a deep well of knowledge about the way of life, wisdom and thinking of the M'ori ancestors."

    Title: Mataatua Wharenui: Te Whare I Hoki Mai
    Author: MEAD HIRINI, HARVEY LAYNE & NGAROPO POUROTO

    Mataatua wharenui is the most travelled Maori meeting house in the country. Built in 1875, it was taken to Australia, London and Otago before being returned to Whakatane after more than a century away.

    The story of Mataatua is part of the story of the desecration of Ngati Awa by the Crown and the fight of the people to regain their sovereignty. Following the confiscation of Ngati Awa land in the 1860s and the devastation to the people of Ngati Awa, building a wharenui was proposed as a way to reunite Ngati Awa. The result was Mataatua, a magnificent wharenui, honoring the people, their history and whakapapa, and the skills of the craftspeople, and establishing a living marae.

    Shortly after it was opened, the government requested that Mataatua be an exhibit at the Sydney International Exhibition, and from here, it travelled across the globe until ending as an exhibit in Otago Museum. By this time, the government had claimed ownership of Mataatua, and it took more than fifty years of perseverance by Ngati Awa to have Mataatua returned to Whakatane to again become a living wharenui in the care of its people. In words and photographs, the book describes the history and construction of Mataatua, its appropriation, work undertaken by generations to have it returned, and the detail of its rebuild and opening in 2011.

These include constitutional change to achieve the restoration of political, social and economic well-being to Ngti Kahu, Crown relinquishment of all Ngti Kahu lands to their rightful owners and payment of sufficient compensation to ensure no further Treaty of Waitangi claims. This history of Ngti Kahu details the range of Crown actions against Ngti Kahu to the current day, the effects of these actions on the people of Ngti Kahu and the concerted and continuing efforts by Ngti Kahu for remedies and reconciliation with the Crown.

    Winner of the New Zealand Heritage Book Award (Non-Fiction) 2019 and Storylines Notable Book Award (2019)

    Andrew Crowe has produced a masterful synthesis of the remarkable voyaging history of the Polynesians." Prof Patrick V. Kirch, Chancellor's Professor Emeritus and Professor of the Graduate School at the University of California at Berkeley. This book casts light on a neglected epoch of world history, one that saw Polynesians expand their territory across the world's largest ocean. Author Andrew Crowe has been collecting the research of a wide range of specialists for many years, assembling it as if the individual findings were pieces of one enormous jigsaw. From this broad focus has come a deep admiration for the skills, resourcefulness and courage of the people that drove this extraordinary feat of maritime exploration.

    "Pathway of the Birds has had a profound effect on my life. Several years before the book was finished, Andrew Crowe asked me to critique the book and while reading it I became fascinated by the astonishing voyaging history of Polynesia. It is a story that few people know. Captain Cook was baffled by how “one nation” could have spread from Tahiti to New Zealand and Hawaii and here is a book that helps to explain how this happened, using a wonderfully interesting mix of scientific, historical and social disciplines.

    So how did this affect my life? I was so inspired by the book that I decided to purchase an ocean-going waka (Hinemoana is shown on the book cover) and set up a foundation that offers young Maori, Polynesia and other New Zealanders the opportunity to appreciate the seafaring experiences of their great ancestors who sailed to Aotearoa 800 years ago. For the last three years the foundation (Hawaiki Rising Voyaging Trust) has offered 1-day, 2-day and 8-day voyagers to hundreds of young people and given them the chance to see life very differently. And it has been life-changing for many" writes Dr Simon McDonald.

    Title: Reconciliation, Representation & Indigeneity 'biculturalism' in Aotearoa
    Author: ADDS PETER, BONISCH-BREDNICH BRIGITTE EDS

    Aotearoa New Zealand is frequently viewed as the most advanced country in the world when it comes to reconciliation processes between the state and its colonised Indigenous people. The fact that this book's contributions are written by scholars who are all engaged in such processes is alone testament to this alone. But despite all that has been achieved, the processes need to be critically evaluated. This book offers an up-to-date analysis of the reconciliation processes between Maori and the Crown by leading and emerging scholars in the field. It is the first attempt to grasp the link between contemporary politics, the notion of activist research, and historical and anthropological analysis. The argument this collection is based on is that reconciliation processes are manifested in much more than government policies, legal decisions and law-making. Both research and political efforts fully involve Indigenous scholars, legal and historical academics, communities, tribes, engaged Pakeha (settlers and immigrants of European descent) and national institutions. Among other things, such negotiation processes are tangibly represented by (new) rituals, by open and media-streamed debates, and by public institutions such as the Waitangi Tribunal.

    Title: Stories Without End
    Author: BINNEY JUDITH

    Judith Binney's work spans nearly forty years of historical endeavour that began with the award-winning biography of the missionary Thomas Kendall, The Legacy of Guilt (1968). Her magisterial publication of 2009, Encircled Lands, is the culmination of many years' work on the history of the Urewera - a great scholarly enterprise that began with a visit to Maungapohatu in the late 1970s. The questions that presented themselves, in that place about that history, led to what Judith Binney has called 'the unanticipated trilogy': Mihaia (the biography of Rua Kenana); Nga Morehu (oral histories of women connected to the Ringatu church); and prize-winning biography of Te Kooti, Redemption Songs. Around this central core of remarkable books stands a ring of essays, exploring sidepaths, offering other stories, presenting glimpses tangential to her historical narratives. The people of these 'stories without end' are those we meet in the books: Rua and Te Kooti, their wives and their descendants; the leaders of the Urewera; the schoolteachers from Maungapohatu; those early missionaries; the government men. Oral history brings its particular resonance to some essays; a discourse on symbols and maps lends insight to another; taking this very specific history, located in the Urewera, to readers outside New Zealand gives a new slant. The stories in this collection are just that: narratives that flow one into another, filling out histories, bringing people out of the shadows, bringing scholarship to life. They are 'stories without end', from a writer who is also one of New Zealand's greatest scholars.

    The importance of this history to New Zealand cannot be overstated. Maori leaders emphatically endorsed the book, as have reviewers and younger commentators. They speak of the way Tangata Whenua draws together different strands of knowledge – from historical research through archaeology and science to oral tradition. They remark on the contribution this book makes to evolving knowledge, describing it as ‘a canvas to paint the future on’. And many comment on the contribution it makes to the growth of understanding between the people of this country.

    Title: Te Matau a Maui: Fishhooks, Fishing & Fisheries in Nz
    Author: PAULIN CHRIS & FENWICK MARK

    Prior to European arrival in New Zealand fishing was a significant component of Maori subsistence. Fish were taken with nets, traps, pots, spears, lures and hooks that were as effective as any modern hook. The superiority of European metals quickly became apparent and traditional tools were rapidly discarded. However, in the late 1800s numerous artefacts were produced by both Maori and Europeans in order to meet the demand from tourists and collectors. This publication summarises research into traditional Maori fish-hooks and fishing, the development of commercial fisheries and the subsequent impact on conservation and management of New Zealand’s fisheries resources since European settlement and the Treaty of Waitangi.

    Title: Te Rongoa Maori: Maori Medicine
    Author: WILLIAMS P M E

    Pip Williams, a retired pharmacist living in Northland, has spent his life observing and recording the use by local Maori of native plants for medicinal purposes. Te Rongoa Maori brings together his observations on 43 New Zealand plants and the health problems they were used to treat, colourfully interspersed with anecdotal evidence and beautifully illustrated with watercolours and engravings. Much of the information in Te Rongoa Maori was told to the author by Hgapuhi kuia and kaumatua over 40 years ago. Maori in earlier times knew about the therapeutic benefits derived from trees and plants for a variety of health problems, but had no knowledge of pharmacology. Consequently, Te Rongoa Maori makes no claims to being a manual of Maori medicine. However, it comprises an important and faithful record of information gleaned over a lifetime's close association with the Ngapuhi people, and of the cultural importance of this heritage.

How did they describe and move about their environment, and survive. Discover forest lore and traditional uses of forest plants, how Maori hunted moa, harvested birds, fish and shellfish, and cultivated plants they bought with them from Polynesia. In a word - fascinating!

    Author: WHEEN NICOLA & HAYWARD JANINE

    The settlement of iwi claims under the Treaty of Waitangi has been a prominent feature of NZ's political & legal landscape over the last thirty years. It has drawn international attention, as other nations seek ways to build new relationships between indigenous peoples & the state. Here leading scholars from the felds of law, history, Mäori studies & politics provide acomprehensive account of the settlement process. The contributors examine the history ofTreaty claims & the impact of Treaty settlements. The major settlements are considered, & their impact on the management & ownership of key resources (such as lands, forests, fisheries). The economic & social consequences for Mäori are debated, along with the impact of the settlement process on the Crown's relationship with Mäori. As the settlement of historical claims draws toward a close (forecast for 2014), this timely book considers the achievements & controversies of Treaty settlements over the years. How successful has the process been in redressing historic grievances? Are Treaty settlements truly ‘full and final’? Are major issues left unresolved? And how does NZ's attempt to build a new relationship between indigenous people & the state rate internationally?

    Title: Treaty of Waitangi: New Edition
    Author: ORANGE CLAUDIA

    Today the Treaty has come to signify what both joins and divides the people of this country. It had different meanings also to those present at the 1840 signing -the new arrivals and the tangatawhenuathen occupying the land. To the British, it was the means by which they gained sovereignty over the country; for Maori, it represented something closer to partnership. That these distinct meanings were conveyed in texts written in different languages only added to the complexities now woven around this crucial agreement.Claudia Orange's remarkable history was first published in 1987. Winning the Goodman Fielder WattieAward it went on to sell over 40,000 copies. As Dr Orange wrote at the time, 'Maoriare still affected by the terms of the Treaty, often adversely'. For many Pakeha New Zealanders, this was a new idea -and even more surprising was the force with which Maoridomwelcomed (and drove forward) the government's initiatives -particularly the newly formed Waitangi Tribunal. The Treaty of Waitangiis a comprehensive study, looking at the place of the Treaty in New Zealand history from its making in the early nineteenth century through to the renewed engagement of the late twentieth century. The story is told of the early negotiations that led to Treaty signings around the country. Land rights were debated before the Treaty was signed -and continuously thereafter. Settler governments were determined to circumvent Treaty guarantees; wars of sovereignty were fought in the 1860s and sporadically thereafter. The longstanding Maoristruggle to retain a degree of autonomy and control over resources has continued to the present day.In a new introduction, Claudia Orange brings the history up to date -covering the dramatic shifts of political allegiance, the impact of the major settlements on iwi(and on the economy), the place of the Treaty in legislation, and legislation such as the Foreshore and Seabed Act of 2004. Maoriand Pakehaare all affected now by the terms of the Treaty -and few can be unaware of its significance, however each of us may view its role.
