    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    Author: GUNN A C. ED & GORDON-BURNS D ED

    How do early childhood education settings become places where everyone involved is able to say they feel they belong? What kinds of questions about inclusion, social justice and equity might it be pertinent and productive to ask of contemporary Aotearoa New Zealand early childhood teachers and their practice? When, how and why might teachers intervene to address issues of injustice and exclusion that arise in the context of early childhood work? These are the kinds of questions explored in this book. Addressing how teachers and policy makers can work for inclusion with diverse children and families, this book focuses on the development of positive attitudes to difference, diversity and inclusion. It suggests possible ways to reduce and eliminate barriers to learning and participation in early childhood communities. The authors interrogate notions of difference, inclusion and exclusion from the perspectives of Maori and cultural responsiveness, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and biculturalism, interculturalism, gender, sexualities, economic disadvantage, age, religion and disability.

    Title: Te Kerikeri 1770 1850: the Meeting Pool
    Author: BINNEY JUDITH ED

    Kerikeri is the oldest unbroken European settlement site in Aotearoa/New Zealand, and it nestles alongside several contemporaneous (and earlier) Maori sites on the Kerikeri River. Today, the Kerikeri Basin, which acted as a 'meeting pool' for the country's two major cultures, is one of New Zealand's most important heritage sites - now being promoted for World Heritage status. A vigorous Maori society had long been established in the north when Anglican missionaries established a station on the river below Kororipo pa in 1819. Kororipo, in the hands of Ngapuhi, was located strategically to control the route to the sea from inland Waimate. For a time, Kerikeri was pivotal in northern Maori politics. The Kerikeri mission house and the Stone Store are both still standing today, built respectively in 1819 and 1837. Here Revd William Yate printed the first work in te reo, and here too he worked with the Maori leaders who wrote the 'letter from the rangatira' of 1831 to the King, initiating the chain of events that culminated in the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, nearby, in 1840. This account tells of Maori and Pakeha in a particular place at a time of radical change. Key historical figures emerge: Hongi Hika, Hone Heke, Rewa, Titore, Waikato, Samuel Marsden, Thomas Kendall, Marianne Williams, George Grey. For a period the two cultures shared a 'middle ground', finding ways to engage. By the 1850s, only James Kemp remained at the mission, and Maori were living under a new dispensation. Land at the Bay of Islands and throughout New Zealand was passing steadily into the newcomers' hands. Evidence of the entwined histories that lie at the heart of Aotearoa/New Zealand can be seen at the Kerikeri Basin. Here, enduring emblems of the past - the surviving buildings, the evocative archaeological sites, the memories of wahi tapu - are shared by both cultures.

    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.

    In traditional Maori knowledge, the weather, birds, fish and trees, sun and moon are related to each other, and to the people of the land, the tangata whenua. It is truly an interconnected world - a vast family of which humans are children of the earth and sky, and cousins to all living things. In this richly illustrated book, Maori scholars and writers share the traditional knowledge passed down the generations by word of mouth. It provides a unique window on the relationship of the people of this land with their environment, as well as the profound knowledge and necessary skills they needed to survive here. How did Maori describe and predict the weather, use the moon as a guide for successful fishing and planting, and celebrate Matariki, the Maori New Year? 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!

    Title: Trading Cultures a History of the Far North
    Author: PUCKEY ADRIENNE

    Trading Cultures is a social, economic and political history that gives fresh insights into how and why Maori and Pakeha in the far north of New Zealand traded and interacted with each other from the 1700s to the present. It explores how the far north began as a bread basket and became an economic basket case by the 1990s and how Maori and Pakeha negotiated two centuries of unprecedented change. While on first contact trade practices between Europeans and Maori were similar, increasing settler numbers and trade led to the two economic systems colliding over differences between gift, barter and moneyed exchanges. With the depression, world wars and urban migration, far north industries collapsed. Throughout this though, social ties to the area remained strong, and with the unemployment of the 1970s people returned and an informal economy revived. This history explores the continuous social and economic engagement between immigrants to the far north and far-northern iwi during these times of change.

    Title: Traditional Lifeways of the Southern Maori
    Author: BEATTIE JAMES HERRIES & ANDERSON ATHOLL

    Journalist and researcher Herries Beattie worked with Southern Maori for almost fifty years and produced many books. With a strong sense that traditional knowledge needed to be recorded, in 1920 he interviewed people from Foveaux Strait to North Canterbury and from Nelson and Westland, with Otago Museum support. He then transcribed notebooks lent to him by his informants, visited the Museum with them, recording southern names for fauna and artefacts, travelled to traditional sites, and consulted the work of earlier researchers. Finally he worked his findings up into the systematic notes which eventually became MS 181 in the Hocken Library, a highly valued but increasingly fragile treasury of knowledge. This was first published by Otago University Press in 1994 and is now reprinted with a new cover. Editor Atholl Anderson introduces the book with a biography of Beattie, a description of his work and information about his informants. This book is a wonderful source of information, unique in New Zealand literature. As Tipene O'Regan writes in his foreword, 'Ngai Tahu will be the richer for the emergence of this remarkable text. Maori studies, in general, will be the richer. The texture of southern knowledge will be better etched in our landscape.'

    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.

Written by some of the country's leading scholars and experts in the field, it ranges from the impact of the Treaty on everything from resource management to school governance. Its focus is the application of the Treaty from the viewpoint of practitioners - the people who are walking and talking it in their jobs, communities or everyday lives - and it vividly tracks the ups and downs of bringing the spirit and principles of the Treaty to fruition.

    Title: Tuamaka the Challenge of Difference in Aotearoa NZ
    Author: METGE JOAN

    From the point of view of a renowned anthropologist, this invaluable volume narrates the history of a multicultural New Zealand in which both Maori and non-Maori individuals cohabitate. Arguing that the Treaty of Waitangi of 1840--signed by the indigenous Maori and the British--established a foundation from which New Zealanders could grow and prosper, this account demonstrates how two cultures met, disputed, and dealt with diversity. In addition, this unique record analyzes the country's languages and myths and explores how they have influenced New Zealand society. Moving and engaging, this record covers six decades of enlightening field work.

    Title: Turning the Hearts of the Children: Early Maori Leaders in the Mormon Church
    Author: KATENE SELWYN

    What inspired so many Maori in the 1880s to question the mainstream churches and flock to an American religion the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormon church? How did the Mormons encourage Maori leaders to pioneer the development of the Church in Aotearoa in the 20th century?Respectful and humble Mormon missionaries had a genuine love and appreciation of Maori. They learned the language, blessed children and administered to the sick, lived among the people, slept on raupo mats and ate the same food. Their church set standards that required sacrifice and commitment from converts, but unlike other missionaries, the Mormons did not reject traditional Maori socio-cultural mores. They shared reverence for family and genealogy and were guided by visions and dreams.This book discusses twelve influential men and women, all born in the 19th century, who joined the Mormon Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and became leaders. Each chapter is written by direct descendants of these rangatira, who by constructive attitude and action brought their people together and enabled them to embrace new concepts and move into a new century.

    Title: Two Peoples, One Land Illst Ed
    Author: WRIGHT MATTHEW

    Description: The New Zealand Wars - at one time called the Land Wars and the Maori Wars - represent one of the most misunderstood (and misreported) 30 years in this country's history. This is the first highly illustrated volume to comprehensively detail the events and personalities who gave shape to the conflict, combined with primary source materials such as official documents, diaries, manuscripts, private papers and statistical records collected and studied over many years. What results is a fascinating exploration of cultural miscommunication and the impact of Maori and Pakeha society on each other, of politics and religion, which peel back the veneer of previous studies to reveal the truth of this bloody war - which pitted British against Maori as well as Maori against Maori - fought out both on the physical battlefield and in the arenas of national pride and personal ambition.

    Title: What's Maori About Maori Education
    Author: PENETITO WALLY

    A unique critique of the history and contemporary practice of Maori academics, this examination argues that equality of education has been promised but rarely delivered in New Zealand. It was not until the late 1970s and early 1980s that ordinary Maori in a few key communities throughout the country courageously stepped outside the mainstream system and created an alternative Maori system in order to enhance their own interpretations of what it means to achieve equality, social justice, and fairness through education. Engaging and thorough, this insider's account explores the Maori point of view and asks What ""an education for all New Zealanders"" really means?
