              Creating useful and decorative pieces with natural materials is extremely enjoyable and satisfying. Many of the projects in this book can be achieved by those with little or no weaving experience, and there are projects that require some previous weaving knowledge for those who w...ant to extend their weaving repertoire or who like a challenge. From delicate cords for jewellery to rugged hefty thick ropes used in outdoor art, from useful bottle carriers and decorative flask holders to toys for children and pets, window blinds and table runners, mobiles and fiery dragons, or Taniwha, this book shows how basic weaving, knotting and plaiting techniques can be used for the creation of any number of useful, fun, and beautiful items with wide appeal. With its strength, durability, flexibility while green and hardness when dry, New Zealand flax is an ideal material for weavers to create practical items as well as decorative pieces. As a sustainable and biodegradable resource, it is a perfect weaving material for a world with too much plastic.

When should you be teine Samoa? And how can you be teine Samoa outside of Samoa? Lani is an afakasi, and is ...unsure of her Samoan heritage and what being Samoan even means. But one thing she knows for sure is that she's afraid of Vai and the 'Real Samoans'. Masina, the free-spirited daughter of a Church Minister, is bound by parental expectations and struggling to fulfill the destiny set by her parents. Teuila is the good Islander girl and proud teine Samoa who realises she doesn't want to be a 'switcher' anymore. How will these junior high school students learn to be, understand and fulfill their obligations as Teine Samoa, living in New Zealand? Teine Samoa is a journey of cultural identity and discovery for four junior high school students, their families, their teachers and, most importantly, anyone who has ever faced the challenges of being a teine Samoa.

              One Sun in the Sky: the untold story of sovereignty and the Treaty of Waitangi, One (Paperback)

              The Waitangi Tribunal has declared that in the Treaty of Waitangi, Maori agreed to a dual-sovereignty partnership in New Zealand. The chiefs understood that the Governor would have authority over Europeans, whilst Maori would retain full sovereignty over themselves. But is th...is true? What does the Treaty actually say? And what do the records show of Maori understanding at the time the Treaty was debated? The history of Crown/ Maori conflict in our nation is also now being reinterpreted through the partnership prism. The new view is that the conflict reflected Maori pursuit of the dual-sovereignty partnership allegedly promised in the Treaty. But is this true? What were the conflicts really about? And what were Maori leaders saying about Crown sovereignty during these conflicts? ONE SUN IN THE SKY presents an evidence-based perspective on the question of sovereignty and the Treaty of Waitangi. Whilst a supporter of the Treaty settlements process, Ewen McQueen raises serious questions about the new paradigm of Treaty interpretation. In this book he reviews the historical evidence for how the Treaty was understood by Maori and Pakeha both at the time it was signed in 1840, and for the century which followed. The story he uncovers is rarely heard today. But it is a story which needs telling. Thoroughly researched and fully referenced, this book is a must-read for all New Zealanders. Not just because truth telling about our history is crucial to the future of race relations in our nation - but because our journey together has been a remarkable story.

              Shadows of Kapiti: 3 (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

              A historical novel on the life of New Zealand's legendary fighting leader Te Rauparaha in the early 1800's. Shadows of Kapiti is the third novel after Tides of Kawhia and Pathways of Taranaki. The acknowledged leader of the biggest alliance of Maori tribes, Te Rauparaha led thous...ands of men and women and hundreds of proudly independent tribal leaders. Maintaining that loyalty, keeping the peace between them and convincing the anxious people that he came in peace, was the most demanding challenge of his life. Tales of heroism, tragedy, a strict code of chiefly conduct and the impact of muskets from European ships are all historically accurate. Driven by competition for trade with the new Pakeha, many tribes put aside ancient protocols that limited warfare which led to decades of intertribal conflict and left many hapu extinct. Drawing on written histories, oral traditions and ancient songs, the author tells a little known but fascinatingly true story behind the actions of the Maori leaders. The author pulls no punches and tells it like it was, violent, bloody, sad and inspiring. Contains violence, cannibalism and references to rape and sex.
