            'I'd wanted to remember why it was we swam in the first place - to remember the pleasure of immersing in an element other than air.' Ingrid Horrocks had few aspirations to swimming mastery, but she had always loved being in the water. She set out on a solo swimming journey, th...en abandoned it for a different kind of swimming altogether - one which led her to more deeply examine relationships, our ecological crisis, and responsibilities to collective care. Why do people swim, and where, how, with whom? Where We Swim ranges from solitary swims in polluted lakes and rivers in Aotearoa New Zealand, to swims in pools in Medellin, Phoenix and the Peruvian Amazon. Near Brighton, Horrocks is joined by an imagined community of early women swimmers; back home she takes her first tentative swim after lockdown. Part memoir, part travel and nature writing, this book is about being a daughter, sister, partner, mother, and above all a human animal living among other animals - sheep and cows, whales and manatee, elks and ibises. 'Where We Swim is a book about family that travels by water in the body of a swimmer. Horrocks is someone with an appetite for adventure but she is also the mother of young children and daughter of older parents. She brilliantly contrasts heady plunges of bodily experience with chilling alarms about family. This book is filled with wanderlust, but also homesickness for a past when our waterways didn't have high coliform counts and Wellington's bays weren't soupy with saIp, and for the whole swimmable world it so vividly remembers.' -Elizabeth Knox

            Nga Aro-Takaro: 100 Maori Games Artefacts
              

            Nga Aro-Takaro: 100 Maori Games Artefacts (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Aro-takaro are the 'face' of traditional Maori games. They are the iconic implements associated with indigenous games practices, rituals and protocols. A testament to their prolific ancient uses are the numerous games artefacts, vividly etched in millennia-old cave paintings, all... over Aotearoa/NZ. Aro-takaro were spiritually conceived from the environment by villagers and perfected as social and educational tools by tohunga, the intellectual giants of the day, known as Hohou-Rongo - revered games artisans and peace-makers. The Hohou-Rongo utilised aro-takaro as mechanisms for peace, enjoyment, social bonding and in education to make their tribespeople resilient and adaptive. Each of the 100 aro-takaro within this volume is illustrated, has a description of the materials it is made from and activities that it is synonymous with. The reader will immediately be able to visit their sacred forests, and with due reverence, identify resources with which to make aro-takaro. These artefacts are as diverse as parahirahi (games sandals) & pikipotae (peace headdresses), equipment for hakura & matamatarongo protocols ( peace dances) and ki (balls), pona (knots) and perepere (games pieces). Here then is a cultural resource which can link educationalists with some of the aro-takaro technologies, conservation practices and beliefs of our forebears.
