Kaitiakitanga Pasifika draws on the brilliance of the historical celestial navigation of the Pacific in waka [sailing canoes], evoking past voyages through contemporary navigational wayfinding in traditional waka using modern solar, wind and kite powered energy. It draws together... a visionary movement of indigenous Pacific people who combine the ancient wisdom of kaitiakitanga and modern ecological knowledge. It is an exciting, compelling and innovative novel from one our most gifted Pacific novelists, with 25 books in print and translation globally. The launching of this book by Witi Ihimaera, at the Frankfurt Bookfair, 2012, where Aotearoa/New Zealand was the Guest of Honour, is a fitting tribute to this award winning author who has created a new genre of literature with her indigenous Cowrie eco novel series.
