    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.

    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.

    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.

    Title: Infinite Threads: 100 Indigenous Insights from Old Maori Manuscripts
    Author: RYAN MARIKO B.

    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: Maori & the Environment: Kaitiaki
    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.

For the first time ever, the seventh little sister, Ururangi, was big enough to make her own celebration kite.

Carole Prentice has created an imaginative new myth to tell the Matariki story Written in a traditional style, this story will be a welcome addition to the limited Matariki resouces Delightfully illustrated in swirling colour by Dominique Ford Translated into Maori

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.
