Māori authors

If you’re looking for fiction written by Māori authors, for NCEA or just because they’re good, here are a few we recommend, along with one or two of their books (most have many more!). Note: we’d love to add to this – if you’ve got a favourite Māori author not here then email us their name and we’ll add them!

    Thanks for the great suggestions, Mary! We’re just in the midst of updating all of our lists, and we’re absolutely going to include Becky Manawatu, J.P. Pomare, and definitely Renée (I’m surprised she wasn’t already on this list, given how many of her books we hold!). Ehara koe i a ia!
