Set in the heart of rural New Zealand in the 1950s, this is the tale of two men, Tamihana Mahana (known as Bulibasha) and Rupeni Poata, fighting for Maori leadership in sport, kapa haka contests and finally the first every Golden Shears competition. Caught in the middle of thi...s clash between two great clans, Simeon, the teenage narrator and grandson of Bulibasha, struggles with his own feelings and loyalties as the battles rage. First published in 1994, Bulibasha won the Montana Book of the Year Award in 1995 and is probably Witi Ihimaera's most well-loved novel. It inspired the 2016 movie Mahana.
