The patterns and body styles are described and accompanied by detailed photographs that make identification of the elements easy. This is part of a series of four books on aspects of Maori culture. The others are: Geothermal Treasures: Maori Living with Heat and Steam; Maori Weaving: The Art of Creating Maori Textiles; and Marae: The Heart of Maori Culture"--Publisher information.

              This is a history of one of New Zealand's most important Maori leaders. He stood at the "interface of nineteenth-century encounter, culture contact and conflict between Maori and Pakeha in New Zealand... he was a peacemaker, but he was labeled a rebel, and his influence was syste...matically undermined by government agency."

              "This collection of essays and selected poetry responds to an address on Samoan religious culture given by Samoa's Head of State, His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Ta'isi Tupuola Tufuga Efi, to the 2009 Parliament of the World's Religions. The address challenges some fundament...al aspects of modern Samoan indigenous religious culture. The essays and poetry form a carefully woven critique, from within and outside Samoa, of aspects of indigenous Pacific culture."--Page 4 of cover.

              "This biography of Tariana Turia sees family members, iwi leaders, social justice advocates and politicians share their experiences of this remarkable woman. While parliament was not originally part of her life plan, Tariana Turia was involved in many community initiatives. A tur...ning point came in 1995, when Tariana's leadership was evident in the reoccupation of Pakaitore. Here was a woman with the courage to care, the determination to speak up and a deep commitment to whanau. Inevitably, she was invited to stand in the 1996 general election. In her eighteen years as an MP, she advanced thinking in the disability area, advocated for tobacco reform and spoke out about sexual abuse, violence and racism. She also led the Whanau Ora initiative. In 2004, she crossed the floor, leading to the birth of the Maori Party"--Publisher information.
