    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.

    Title: Ask that Mountain: The Story of Parihaka New Edition
    Author: SCOTT DICK

    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.

    Title: Decolonizing Methodologies
    Author: SMITH LINDA TUHIWAI

    This essential volume explores intersections of imperialism and research - specifically, the ways in which imperialism is embedded in disciplines of knowledge and tradition as 'regimes of truth'. Concepts such as 'discovery' and 'claiming' are discussed and an argument presented that the decolonisation of research methods will help to reclaim control over indigenous ways of knowing and being. 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: 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.

    Contributors: Natalie Baird, Claire Breen, Claire Charters, Sarah Down, Andrew Erueti, Kirsty Gover, Justice Matthew S R Palmer, Matthew S Smith, Fleur Te Aho, Linda Te Aho, Tracey Whare

    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: 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.

    Title: Maori Oral Tradition: He Korero No Te Ao Tawhito
    Author: MCRAE JANE

    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."

    ISBN: 9781775502128
    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.

    Author: CROWE ANDREW

    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: 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.

    Maori at the centre of the country’s story, Tangata Whenua begins in the Pacific & outlines early settlement in NZ. A 2nd section covers the period of great change in the 19th century, examining how Maori communities were affected by the influx of new technology, religious ideas, trade & literacy. The history then extends forward through the twentieth century – with two world wars, the growth of an urban Maori culture, rising protest, & Treaty claims & settlements. At the beginning of the 21st century, Maori are drawing on both international connections & their ancestral place in Aotearoa. The ways in which growth & development are interwoven with tension & resistance will be evident in the future as they have been throughout the past.

    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: 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.
