    Title: Dictionary of Maori Language
    Author: WILLIAMS H W

    The first edition of A Dictionary of the New Zealand Language, the work of William Williams, Archdeacon (and later Bishop) of Waiapu, appeared in 1852 - more than thirty years before the publication of the first part of the Oxford English Dictionary. Ever since then students of Maori language have found Williams' dictionary indispensable. The third (1871) and fourth (1892) editions were revised by William Leonard, son of William. He, too, was Archdeacon (and later Bishop) of Waiapu. The fifth, much enlarged edition, was edited by Herbert, grandson of Williams, and, inevitably it seems, Bishop of Waiapu.

    Incorporating material provided by such scholars as Eldson Best, A.S. Atkinson, Edward Tregear, Williams Colenso and the Rev. Mohi Turei, and drawing examples largely from the writings of Maori authorities including Te Rangikaheke, Te Rangihaeata, Te Whatahoro and others, the fifth edition was virtually a new work, and an enduring tribute to the linguistic scholarship of the Williams' lineage.

    Title: He Puna Kupu: He Manawa Aa-Whenua
    Author: WAIKATO-TAINUI

    To know one's own language is to know oneself. So knowing your dialect is about knowing yourself, where you come from, how you are related to others and where you fit in the world.

    He Puna Kupu, He Manawa aa-Whenua is the first stop for lovers and learners of Maaori language, particularly those interested in Tainui dialect. Recorded for the first time in one place, these words and phrases, drawn from Tainui contexts and used by Tainui experts, were collected specifically for Tainui descendants.

    If you are an avid learner of Maaori language, or interested in learning Tainui-specific words, phrases and contexts, then this book is for you.

    Ko te reo kei too arero, te reo o too ao. Noo reira ko too reo aa iwi, te reo o too ngaakau, te reo e hiiri ai koe ki ngoo whakapapa me ngoo paanga ki ngaa iwi o te motu.

    ISBN: 9781869408664
    Title: He Reo Wahine: Maori Women's Voices from the Nineteenth Century
    Author: PATERSON LACHY & WANHALLA ANGELA

    During the nineteenth century, Maori women produced letters and memoirs, wrote off to newspapers and commissioners, appeared before commissions of enquiry, gave evidence in court cases, and went to the Native Land Court to assert their rights. He Reo Wahine is a bold new introduction to the experience of Maori women in colonial New Zealand through Maori women¿s own words ¿ the speeches and evidence, letters and testimonies that they left in the archive. Drawing from over 500 texts in both English and te reo Maori written by Maori women themselves, or expressing their words in the first person, He Reo Wahine explores the range and diversity of Maori women¿s concerns and interests, the many ways in which they engaged with colonial institutions, as well as their understanding and use of the law, legal documents, and the court system. The book both collects those sources ¿ providing readers with substantial excerpts from letters, petitions, submissions and other documents ¿ and interprets them. Eight chapters group texts across key themes: land sales, war, land confiscation and compensation, politics, petitions, legal encounters, religion and other private matters. Beside a large scholarship on New Zealand women¿s history, the historical literature on Maori women is remarkably thin. This book changes that by utilising the colonial archives to explore the feelings, thoughts and experiences of Maori women ¿ and their relationships to the wider world.

    Plus an astute narrative on the fascinating history and culture of the Maori people in New Zealand / Aotearoa as told by an insider.

    What is Infinite Threads?

    For thousands of years, the Maori tohunga, sages, passed closely guarded knowledge to new generations of sages, using only an orally coded system. Two hundred years ago, they started recording that knowledge into secret manuscripts.

    Why did they suddenly abandon their oral traditions?
    Who were they writing for?
    Can this indigenous knowledge provide us with a beacon in our time?

    ISBN: 9781869694029
    Title: Kaitiaki: Maori & the Environment
    Author: SELBY RACHAEL

    This collection of 19 articles discusses the impact of changes in Aotearoa New Zealand's natural environment due to factors such as climate change, pollution and degredation of waterways and land, pest control and environmental management policy. It highlights Maori perspectives on these issues and actions that Maori have taken to maintain and restore the environment. These contributions demonstrate that the relationship that Maori have with the environment through kaitiakitanga has sound environmental principles and provide a reminder of obligations for future generations of all New Zealanders. With local, regional and central government decisions about the environment continuing to be based on a least expensive option rather than on the most sustainable, the book suggests that Maori should take a lead role as active kaitiaki to promote sound principles in the wider community for the benefit of all.

    Title: Mana From Heaven: A Century Of Maori Prophets In NZ
    Author: ELSMORE BRONWYN

    In the period from 1820 to 1920, more than 60 prophets arose in New Zealand leading distinctive movements in response to the message brought by Christian missionaries. Although many served as vehicles for social protest, these movements were primarily attempts to affirm spiritual and racial identity in the face of rapid cultural change.
    Mana From Heaven records the evolution of Maori spirituality from early contact, particularly considering the influence of the translated scriptures, and showing how and why the movements differed in distinct periods.
    Regarded as the definitive work in its field, the book analyses the principal influences in Maori religious movements during the first century of European settlement and gives vivid portrayals of the dozens of individuals who shaped the responses to the new beliefs.

Its embers fanned back to life by modern practitioners in the 1980s, it has once again become a powerful form of Maori cultural expression, identity and unity. In a first for Australia, 'Maori markings: te moko' looks at not only the history of this living, breathing art of our region but also shares stories of today's proud moko wearers and practitioners"--Foreword.

    Title: Maori Tales of Long Ago
    Author: REED A W

    Maori Tales of Long Ago is a fresh facsimile edition of a classic collection of sixteen stories adapted from Maori mythology for a young readership. The tales were originally published by A.W. & A.H. Reed during the late 1940s in two hardback volumes, Maori Tales of Long Ago and Wonder Tales of Maoriland. Best-sellers of their time, they gave a generation of New Zealand children a lyrical introduction to the world of Maori mythology. In each story, a myth is narrated and brought to life by genial old Popo, the village storyteller and friend of the chief's son and daughter, Rata and Hine. Now in a new paperback edition, this book faithfully keeps the charming original line drawings by A.S. Paterson, including eight illustrated colour plates. It contains a foreword from David Simmons, a distinguished ethnologist, former assistant director of the Auckland War Memorial Museum, and author of several books on Maoritanga.

    Title: Nou te Ao, e Hika e! (Oh The Places You'll Go Te Reo Version)
    Author: SEUSS DR (TRANSLATED BY KELLY KARENA)

    He whakamaori i ta Dr. Seuss pakiwaitara rongonui, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

    ‘Me mihi ka tika, te toa o te ra! Turou, Hawaiki! To pai! Wehi na!’

    Topa mai, taka mai, ko nga piki me nga heke o te ao o te tangata te aronga nui o tenei korero reka na te matanga, na Dr. Seuss. He kupu akiaki kei roto e maumahara ai te tangata ki ona painga, e mataara ai ki nga uauatanga, me te toro matatoa atu ki te ao e tawhiri mai ana.

    ‘He koi koe a-runga. He kama a-raro. He kakano koe e kore e ngaro.’

    I Nou te Ao, e Hika e!, kua mau i a Karena Kelly te paki, te toi, te taki me te koi o Seuss, e mohio whanuitia ana, i tana tarai i te kupu hei reo Maori mo te pakiwaitara rongonui nei.

    A Maori language translation of Dr. Seuss’s classic for young and old, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

    ‘Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!’

    From soaring high-flyers to lurches and slumps, Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You’ll Go! speaks to the ups and downs of life. It encourages us all to remember our strengths, recognise the challenges, and grab life with both hands.

    ‘You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.’

    In Nou te Ao, e Hika e!, Karena Kelly brilliantly captures Seuss’s verbal wit and wisdom, and his trademark rhythm and rhyme, while finding this great story its Maori voice.

    Te Kaituhi / Author

    No te tau 1904 a Theodor Seuss Geisel whanau mai ai i Springfield, i Massachusetts – ko Ted te ingoa i mohiotia ra e ona hoa, ko Dr. Seuss ki te hia nei miriona tangata e monoa ana ki ana mahi. Mutu ana tana ako ki te Kareti o Dartmouth, i New Hampshire, ki te whare wananga o Oxford hoki, i Ingarangi, ka huri ia ki nga mahi tuhi pakiwaituhi mo te maheni, ki nga mahi whakatairanga ano hoki. Ka tere kawea ana tini pukenga ki te tuhituhi pukapuka ma te tamariki. No te tau 1937 tangia ai tana pukapuka tuatahi And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, a, nui atu i te ono tekau atu ano nga pukapuka ma te tamariki kua puta i a ia, ko etahi o nga tino pukapuka o te ao, e arohaina nuitia ana e te iti me te rahi – ko The Cat in the Hat (no te tau 1957), ko How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (no te tau 1957) ko Green Eggs and Ham (no te tau 1960), me The Lorax (no te tau 1971). Ko Oh, the Places You’ll Go! ta Seuss kupu ohaki, i tangia i te tau i mua i tana matenga, i tona tau waru tekau ma whitu.

    Theodor Seuss Geisel – known as Ted to his friends and as Dr. Seuss by his millions of fans – was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books. His first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937 and he went on to publish more than sixty of the most beloved children’s books of all time, from The Cat in the Hat (1957) and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957) to Green Eggs and Ham (1960) and The Lorax (1971). Published one year before his death at age eighty-seven, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is Dr Seuss’s farewell salute.

    Te Kaiwhakamaori / Translator

    Ko te reo me te wetereo Maori te kai a Dr Karena Kelly (Ngapuhi, Ngati Hine). E whakaako ana ia ki te hia nei kaupapa reo Maori, ko nga kura reo a-rohe, a-motu ano hoki etahi, a, e tohutohu ana i nga tini hinonga huri noa i Aotearoa ki nga kaupapa reo. He pukenga a Karena i Te Herenga Waka, i Te Whanga-nui-a- Tara, i reira ra puta ai tona ihu ki tana tohu kairangi i te tau 2015. He ika a Whiro ia no Te Panekiretanga o te Reo, he kaiwhakamaori ano hoki no te Toi Reo Maori. He kanorau ana whakamaoritanga tuhinga auaha, he toi kupu na Homer, na Apollinaire, na Katherine Mansfield, na Julia Donaldson hoki. No onamata etahi, no na tata nei etahi atu. Katoa ana whakamaoritanga o nga pukapuka ma te tamariki, he hua no te awhero nui kia huhua, kia kounga hoki nga pukapuka reo Maori hei panui tahi ma raua ko tana tama nohinohi, ko Asher. Ko te whakamaoritanga o ta Seuss Oh, the Places You'll Go!, ko tana koha ki tana tama, i tana huritau tuarima.

    Dr Karena Kelly is a specialist in Maori language and linguistics – teaching into a variety of Maori language fora, including regional and national kura reo, and providing strategic and linguistic advice to organisations throughout New Zealand. Karena lectures at Victoria University of Wellington, her alma mater, where she graduated with a PhD in 2015. She is also a graduate of Te Panekiretanga o te Reo, the Institute of Excellence in the Maori Language, and a Toi Reo Maori licensed translator. Her literary translation portfolio is diverse, including the works of Homer and Apollinaire, Katherine Mansfield and Julia Donaldson. Her translations of children’s literature are borne of her desire for an abundance of great books in te reo Maori to share with her young son, Asher. The translation of Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was her gift to him for his fifth birthday.

    Author: OLSEN-REEDER VINI & HIGGINS RAWINA & HUTCHINGS JES

    Te Ahu o te reo Maori: Reflecting on Research to Understand the Well-being of te reo Maori is an edited collection of bi-lingual writings that brings together Maori researchers, writers and community language advocates who were involved in the Te Taura Whiri-funded study, Te Ahu o te reo. Te Ahu o te reo Maori draws on this national research project completed in 2016, and brings together some of the different voices of the project in a way that will appeal to a wider audience. The aim of the book is to provide a space, beyond the funded research project, to reflect on the role of kaupapa Maori research and the researcher in Maori language research. Writers explore the concept of well-being in relation to te reo Maori and share evidence-based information about what supports and hinders the revitalisation of te reo Maori in communities, homes, kura and schools in Aotearoa in the 21st century. Contributors include: Vini Olsen-Reeder, Professor Rawinia Higgins, Jessica Hutchings, Jen Martin, Stephanie Fong, Associate Professor Jenny Bol Jun Lee-Morgan, Eruera Lee-Morgan, Waitiahoaho Emery.
