A must for anyone with a connection to this beautiful area or with an interest in the arts and environment.

            Tuhoe: Portrait of a Nation
              

            Tuhoe: Portrait of a Nation (Hardback)

            By Warne, Kennedy; Photographs by Quinn, Peter James

            "Tuhoe: Portrait of a Nation explores the relationship between Tuhoe and Te Urewera, the people and the land. It is the result of a multi-year project by acclaimed documentary photographer Peter James Quinn and Kennedy Warne, founding editor of New Zealand Geographic. The two jou...rnalists circled the 'encircled lands' - the tribal domain that stretches from the forest fortress of Lake Waikaremoana to the coastal valleys of the Bay of Plenty - and collected the stories of Tuhoe. From tribal leaders to possum hunters, traditional healers to tourism operators, Tuhoe shared their words, their culture and their lives. At once an exquisite photographic showcase - incorporating dramatic landscapes, documentary-style reportage and portraiture - and the most up-to-date retelling of Tuhoe history, here is a portrait of an iwi and its encounter with a unique and treasured land. Listening to the past through the voices of today, the book asks, and answers, the question: What does it mean to be Tuhoe?"--Publisher information.

            Matiatia Bay is the gateway to Waiheke Island. Lying beside the island's best natural harbour, it has been the landing place for Maori waka, settler barges, tourist yachts and commuter ferries today. This beautiful heritage site is threatened by development - a marina is proposed..., and intensive parking. Establishing the significance of the past, historian Paul Monin tells Matiatia's story from early Maori occupation to the present day. Here in a fertile bay in the magnificent setting of the Hauraki Gulf is a microcosm of New Zealand's history. Charmingly written, MATIATIA: GATEWAY TO WAIHEKE includes a rich array of photographs and maps.
