Kōrero, Te Arawa, Taranaki and Punamu

Will you have enough time to read our Māori selection over the next two months? We have many books you can choose from. Tāhuhu kōrero : the sayings of Taitokerau unveils the proverbs of the Far North and their historical background. The Treaty of Waitangi in New Zealand’s law and constitution reflects on the legal status of the treaty, and The beating heart tells about the history of the Te Arawa tribes since the 1830s. Other items deal with Māori legislation, the Brown Pages directory, voices of Taranaki women, modern Māori food, Māori prayers and language. If a study of ‘sacred references to the dead’ study, Māori tribes and New Zealand greenstone also interest you, check out this month’s Māori Recent Picks.
