    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.

    ISBN: 9781869405946
    Title: Meeting Place: Maori & Pakeha Encounters 1642 to 1840
    Author: O'MALLEY VINCENT

    THE MEETING PLACE is an examination of relationships between Maori and Pakeha focusing predominantly on the period between 1814 and 1840 when, O'Malley argues, both peoples lived / inhabited a 'middle ground'- in the historian's Richard White's phrase - in which neither could dictate the political, economic or cultural rules. Vincent O'Malley begins by introducing readers to pre-1814 encounters between Maori and European from, Tasman and Cook to sealers and whalers. He then provides a thematic analysis of the 1814 to 1840 period, looking at economic, religious, political and sexual encounters as Maori and Pakeha sorted through the meanings of land, money, gods, leaders and sex. Finally, O'Malley looks at why and how the middle ground gave way to a world in which Pakeha had enough power to dictate terms. THE MEETING PLACE draws on an impressive range of sources to offer a welcome addition to works concerning Maori-Pakeha interaction in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries including those by Anne Salmond, James Belich, Judith Binney, Hazel Petrie, and others. It will appeal to the every general reader interested in New Zealand history but will also be useful for teaching. Its coverage of several major historical debates is likely to serve existing university courses throughout New Zealand as well as the senior secondary school curriculum.

    Author: CROCKET KATHIE ET AL

    This book is for:
    Maori practitioners and other practitioners supporting whanau

    This book is about:
    Employing whakaaro Maori (Maori knowledge) in counselling practice with whanau
    Learning and teaching mana-enhancing counselling practice.

    There are no competing books on the market today, and this is a practical and accessible resource for all those engaged in counsellor education, practising counsellors, as well as pastoral caregivers and clergy, social and community workers, mental health workers, teachers in guidance-related roles in school, and counsellors within voluntary organisations.
    Maori perspectives are incorporated into the counselling process and these give shape to the therapeutic encounter – as an aid to promote understanding. The shift away from a “deficit approach” is important in this book – its orientation is strengths-based and the approach in the model is a team approach. The broad goal is to foster Maori-centred practice as a distinctive approach to assist whanau realise their potential.
    The editorial group have drawn the material from Master’s level teaching and research at Waikato University, NZ.

    Title: Nga Morehu the Survivors
    Author: CHAPLIN GILLIAN & BINNEY JUDITH & WALLACE CRAIG

    For much of women's history, memory is the only way of discovering the past. Other sources simply do not exist. This is true for any history of Maori women in this century. All the women in this book have lived through times of acute social disturbance. Their voices must be heard. Judith Binney, 1992. In eight remarkable oral histories, NGA MOREHU brings alive the experience of Maori women from in the mid-twentieth century. Heni Brown Reremoana Koopu, Maaka Jones, Hei Ariki Algie, Heni Sunderland, Miria Rua, Putiputi Onekawa and Te Akakura Rua talked with Judith Binney and Gillian Chaplin, sharing stories and memoires. These are the women whose 'voices must be heard'. The title, 'the survivors', refects the women's connection with the visionary leader Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki and his followers, who adopted the name 'Nga Morehu' during the wars of the 1860s. But these women are not only survivors: they are also the chosen ones, the leaders of their society. They speak here of richly diverse lives - of arranged marriages and whangai adoption traditions, of working in both Maori and Pakeha communities. They pay testimony to their strong sense of a shared identity created by religious and community teachings.

    ISBN: 9781877378027
    Title: Ngapua the Political Life of Hone Heke Ngapua
    Author: MOON PAUL

    Hone Heke Ngapua (1869-1909) was one of the foremost Maori leaders of the past two centuries. He received enormous recognition as an MP, working alongside Carroll, Ngata, and Seddon, and emerged as the country's first pan-tribal Maori leader. Paul Moon's long-awaited first biography of Ngapua is as absorbing as the man himself, and fills a vital gap in the country's history - especially its Maori history - in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Against the background of a people in almost terminal crisis, Ngapua emerges as a potential saviour, but with a career plagued by powerful opponents who at times conspire to defeat him. This epic journey into the life of one the greatest Maori leaders of the last two centuries also offers what is, at times, a major reinterpretation of Maori politics. Yet, perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this account of Ngapua's career is that up until now, so much of the story has lain hidden, beyond the reach of other historians. Paul Moon's meticulous reconstruction of this extraordinary politician was possible because he was granted full use of Ngapua's personal papers, to which no other biographer has had access. In addition, a search lasting almost four years uncovered previously unknown diaries and letters, thus finally enabling this authoritative biography of Ngapua's political life to be produced.

    Author: MUTU MARGARET ET AL

    This book describes the iwi of Ngti Kahu through the traditions and histories of each of the sixteen hap, told by kuia and kaumtua and kept alive for future generations. These include histories of poverty, deprivation and marginalisation at the hands of the Crown, and loss of lands of the iwi. The book examines the range of techniques used by the Crown to justify its actions and the way these laid the groundwork for continuing injustices. The remedies needed to redress these injustices and achieve reconciliation of Ngti Kahu and the Crown are set out. 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.

    Title: Outcasts of the Gods? the Struggle Over Slavery in Nz
    Author: PETRIE HAZEL

    ‘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 one sarcastic blogger.



    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 the perceptions of British colonists and the anti-slavery movement?



    A meticulously researched book, Outcasts of the Gods? looks closely at a huge variety of evidence to answer these questions, analysing bondage and freedom in traditional Maori society; the role of economics and mana in shaping captivity; and how the arrival of colonists and new trade opportunities transformed Maori society and the place of captives within it.

    Title: Parihaka Cult
    Author: BOLTON KERRY

    'The events that took place in and around Parihaka particularly from about 1860 to 1900 have affected the political, cultural and spiritual dynamics of the entire country' - Human Rights Commission, 2010 The 'colonial invasion' of Parihaka in 1881 and the arrest of its self-styled 'prophets' Te Whiti and Tohu, have become a major part of the New Zealand narrative that has been revised to inculcate a guilt complex into European, especially British-descended, New Zealanders in the interests of tribal agendas. As such, the Parihaka legend ranks alongside America's 'Wounded Knee' and South Africa's 'Sharpeville' as part of a world-wide offensive against the past, present and future of European descended peoples. Over the past forty-years or so, we in New Zealand have watched our history being systematically re-invented, not based upon documented evidence of real-events that actually occurred on the ground, but solely to serve a modern-day need for made-to-order propaganda. One of the foremost of the churned-out, manufactured-myths surrounds the mid-19th century creation of a cultist-community called 'Parihaka', now represented, in typical Marxist-speak, as some kind of a Gandhi inspiring bastion of righteousness and passive-resistance against imperialist tyranny. Dr Kerry Bolton delves deeply into the huge body of extant historical documentation, contemporary to Parihaka's founding prophet, and lays the entire, lame-fantasy bare for all to see. What has been emotively bantered-about as New Zealand's 'Holocaust' or 'Genocide' at Parihaka, due to the very belated intervention by troops of a long-suffering government, renders-down to little more than a Maori boy with a sore foot, after it was trodden on by a horse. Martin Doutre - Archaeological-surveyor, researcher, author of Ancient Celtic New Zealand and The Littlewood Treaty. Having over half a century of hands-on experience with regard to the true early history of this country I find your book very exciting, very well researched, and a constructive history of the events of the time.

    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: Simple Nullity the Wi Parata Case in Nz Law & History
    Author: WILLIAMS DAVID

    The 1877 legal case Wi Parata v Bishop of Wellington centred on the ownership and use of the Whitireia Block, near Porirua. In refusing to inquire into ownership of the block, the Supreme Court judges dismissed the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi: 'So far indeed as that instrument purported to cede the sovereignty - a matter with which we are not directly concerned - it must be regarded as a simple nullity.' Over the past 25 years, this 'simple nullity' view of the Treaty has been castigated and the 'infamous' case seen as symbolic of the neglect of Maori rights. Now, David V Williams takes a fresh look at the case, affording new insights into both Maori-Pakeha relations in the nineteenth century and the legal position of the Treaty. Behind the apparent dismissal of the Treaty as a 'simple nullity' lay deep arguments about the place of Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New Zealand, which are as relevant now as they were then.

    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.

    Title: Tangata Whenua: A History
    Author: ANDERSON ATHOLL, BINNEY JUDITH & HARRIS AROHA

    Tangata Whenua: A History presents a rich narrative of the Maori past from ancient origins in South China to the twenty-first century, in a handy paperback format. The authoritative text is drawn directly from the award-winning Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History; the full text of the big hardback is available in a reader-friendly edition, ideal for students and for bedtime reading, and a perfect gift for those whose budgets do not stretch to the illustrated edition. Maps and diagrams complement the text, along with a full set of references and the important statistical appendix.

    Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History was published to widespread acclaim in late 2014. This magnificent history has featured regularly in the award lists: winner of the 2015 Royal Society Science Book Prize, shortlisted for the international Ernest Scott Prize, winner of the Te Korero o Mua (History) Award at the Nga Kupu ora Aotearoa Maori Book Awards, and Gold in the Pride in Print Awards.

    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: Tarara Croats & Maori in Nz Memory Belonging Identity
    Author: BOZIC-VRBANCIC SENKA

    At the turn of the twentieth century, Croatians were migrating from Dalmatia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and Maori, having become part of the British Empire, were losing much of their land. All were looking for work. They came together on the gumfields of the farnorth, digging up kauri gum resin for export. ""Many of the Croatians settled and married - some to mail-order brides from home, others to local Maori women - and a unique community was born. Drawing on a range of sources, from official historical narratives on the kauri gum industry, to oral histories, novels, letters, newspaper articles, marriage certificates, and much more, Senka Bozic-Vrbancic examines Maori-Croatian relationships on the gumfields and beyond. This is a significant contribution to ideas about migration and displacement and an important discussion of the impact of different social models - colonialism, assimilation, biculturalism, and multiculturalism - on Maori and Croatian identity and memory. The book is illustrated with historical photographs.""--BOOK JACKET.

    Title: Te Ao Hurihuri: The Changing World 1920-2014: Tangata Whenua An Illustrated History Part 3
    Author: HARRIS AROHA

    Te Ao Hurihuri: The Changing World shows Maori engaged energetically in building and rebuilding their communities through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries as Crown policies re-oriented from the acquisition of Maori land to its development. Maori held fiercely to iwi-specific connectedness, community organisation and te reo me ona tikanga (the language and its customs). New kinds of Maori institutions released the dynamism and creativity of tangata whenua, but the struggle continued against a background of social and economic hardship that burdens so many Maori lives. Drawn from the landmark publication, Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History (2014), Te Ao Hurihuri brings the history up to the present.
