By Winiata, WhatarangiBy Luke, Daphne
This collection brings together over forty years of thought and comment by Dr Whatarangi Winiata on Maori
spirituality, social development, education and political affairs. Each chapter discusses the importance and
impact of Maori management of Maori matters and the ongoing pur...suit of tino rangatiratanga in all areas of life.
Dr Winiata has worked to achieve Maori development, wellbeing and attainment of aspirations over decades:
driving the iwi development programme Whakatupuranga Rua Mano that led to the foundation of the first
contemporary wananga, Te Wananga o Raukawa; being key in restructuring the working of Te Hahi Mihingare;
galvanising the New Zealand Maori Council to hold the Crown accountable over fisheries, forestry, language
and broadcasting; and co-founding the Maori Party with Dame Tariana Turia and Sir Pita Sharples. These
papers, curated by Dr Winiata and Daphne Luke, provide an analysis of recent Maori experience, pursuit of
self-determination and history of Aotearoa.Read more
