              Pete dreams of being an All Black but life isn't easy - other boys in the rugby team are bigger and stronger, the new principal is trying to take Maori culture away from school, and his annoying daughter wants to be Pete's friend. Stuff that. She's a straight up weirdo! The schoo...l bully wants to smash his face in every chance he gets, and on top of that, his best mate isn't being himself lately. What's going on with him? A book where young characters begin to question their world in Aotearoa. Was land stolen off Maori years ago? If so, what does that mean now? Why was there a war between Maori and Europeans on the banks of the Waikato river? How different are New Zealand Maori from New Zealand Europeans today, and how different did their cultures used to be? When it seems like everything is against Pete, he has to stand up and fight for what he believes in, and he learns that help can come from the most surprising places.

              No Maori Allowed: New Zealand's Forgotten History of Racial Segregation
                

              No Maori Allowed: New Zealand's Forgotten History of Racial Segregation (Paperback)

              This is the story of New Zealand's most racist town. From 1952 to 1964, Pukekohe housed the only segregated Maori school in the history of the country. Tragically, hundreds of Maori infants and children died as a result of their segregation in slums where they were forced to live... on the edge of town. No Maori Allowed looks at what happened at Pukekohe and the extent of racial intolerance across the country. Using records from the National Archives and firsthand interviews, chapters cover the extent of racial intolerance across the country in housing and employment during the segregation period from 1925 to the early 1960s. Did you know that on 'K Road' in Auckland, shops had signs reading 'No Credit for Maori,' in Hamilton stores refused to let them try on pants, hospitals had segregated maternity wards and gave them less expensive cutlery, while many stores and major banks had official policies of not hiring 'coloureds'. When a New Zealand University Press insisted that I modify the text as it was too pro- Maori, I decided to publish it myself, because the true history of Maori cannot be censored.

              Why do bullies Bully? Bullying is a learned behaviour and behind every bully in school there's almost always a bigger bully in that kids life showing them that this is what love looks like. In this book we don't humiliate, punish or exclude bullies. Instead we show them love, com...passion and understanding and empower them to recognise that their behaviour is not love. We truly believe that once you show a confused kid what true love really looks like they will be empowered to change. So let's stop throwing hate at the problem and start throwing love at the solution because after all everybody deserves to be loved. Even the bully.

              In 1979 I went on my first hunt on Stewart Island and quickly developed a passion for hunting whitetail deer. Since that first hunt I have been to the Island more than one hundred times. This book documents some of those hunts. The history of our whitetail has always interested m...e and there is reason to question the origins of our deer. There has been a lot of misinformation published over the years about whitetail deer and I have tried to set the record straight by including a section on the habits of the deer themselves at the end of most chapters. There is a chapter on our study into the movements of whitetails we captured and released at Mason Bay and other research done over the years. It details the history of Rakiura Hunter Camp Trust of which I have been chairman since it began building and maintaining huts for hunters on the Island in 2000. Something unique in New Zealand hunting of which I am very proud and has been universally accepted by whitetail hunters.

              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.
