    Author: KARETU TIMOTI & MILROY WHAREHUIA

    Sir Timoti Karetu and Dr Wharehuia Milroy are widely recognised as two of New Zealand's leading teachers and scholars of Maori language and culture. They both taught at The University of Waikato from the 1970s and pursued an innovative approach by teaching language courses in te reo Maori, with tikanga courses taught in Maori and English. Te Wharehuia and Timoti were pioneers in this area, forging a model for teaching Maori which is now followed by many other tertiary institutions.

    This is a book of chapters on key aspects of Maori language and culture authored by two of this country's pre-eminent kaumatua. The authors discuss key cultural concepts (including mana, tapu, wairua, whakapapa, ritual, farewell speeches and Maori humour) as well as language and cultural issues of the modern world. The language used is an exemplar for learners and speakers of the language. With assistance from a team at Te Ipukarea, the National Maori Language Institute, who transcribed and edited structured conversations between these two kaumatua, this book gets down on paper the voices and ideas of these two major scholars for present and future generations.

    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.

    Kua whakatoopuungia ngaa kupu, ngaa kiianga noo roto mai o ngaa horopaki Tainui ki te waahi kotahi hei kai maa te mata, hei kai maa te hinengaro, hei kai maa te rangatira. Noo reira kei ngaa rangatira o Tainui waka, ko teenei Puna Kupu hei Manawa aa-Whenua maa taatou katoa.

    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.

    INFINITE THREADS takes you on an epic, eye-opening journey through a series of 100 interpretations of the wisdoms, stories and words of old Maori Sages.

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

    Imbued with entertaining "wit, humour, cutting insight" that keeps you hooked and "turning pages to find answers to the tantalising threads left dangling."

    Published during one of the world's most challenging times, many of the first readers say Infinite Threads is a must read for right now and has changed their lives. Find out why.

    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: Maori Markings: Ta Moko
    Author: MARSDEN SUSAN & RUSSELL ROSLYN

    A new survey of the best works by the elusive and spectacular Spanish Impressionist Joaqu n Sorolla. Often compared to his contemporary, the American artist John Singer Sargent, Joaqu n Sorolla (1863-1923) was a master draftsman and painter of landscapes, formal portraits, and monumental, historically themed canvases. Highly influenced by French Impressionism, the Valencian artist was a master plein-air painter known for his luminous seaside scenes of frolicking youths and for vivid depictions of Spanish rural life and its pleasures and customs. This beautifully designed and produced volume brings together one hundred of Sorolla's major paintings, selected by his great-granddaughter Blanca Pons-Sorolla, the foremost authority on the artist. Benefiting from close proximity to the artist and his personal archives, she presents an in-depth essay that explores Sorolla's life, work, and remarkable international legacy. With virtually all of the artist's previous publications now out of print, this much-anticipated volume is an important addition to the literature on this great Spanish master.

    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.
