Ngati Porou

Syndetics book coverMeeting-houses of Ngāti Porou o Te Tai Rāwhiti : an illustrated guide, by David Simmons ; foreword by Tamati Reedy.
This lavishly illustrated history of Te Tai Rāwhiti area is the most complete and detailed record of former and existing meeting-houses of Ngāti Porou …It is the result of over 30 years research by scholar David Simmons and goes beyond existing studies of ceremonial house exteriors to investigate those with little, if any, decorative features and those with completely carved interiors” - back cover.

book cover courtesy of Reed Books Eruera, the teachings of a Maori elder, by Eruera Stirling as told to Anne Salmond. (1980, 1985, 2002)
Eruera Manuera was at the forefront of Ngati Awa leadership for over half a century until his death in 1990. His leadership style was characterised by his skill as an orator and innovative approach to tikanga Maori. (drawn from Reed Books)
