              Dividing a Nation: the Return to Tikanga
                

              Dividing a Nation: the Return to Tikanga (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Pre-1840 the rules of Tikanga could be brutal in respect of inter-tribal wars and their consequences - especially for the ordinary natives who often lived in fear. Happily everyday life for Maoris has been transformed. The practice of tikanga has changed, taking on many aspects o...f Western culture. There are many and varied descriptions of just what tikanga is now. This uncertain tikanga is being re-introduced into our way of life and written into law, setting rules to determine the behaviour not just of part-Maoris but of all New Zealanders. Given these increasing requirements, it is important that the rules of tikanga be clear. What is this tikanga that we must increasingly follow? This book is a scan across the history of the old ways, a description of the changes brought about largely by Maori themselves in their great cultural transformation, and reports of recent disruptive actions where special race-based rights are claimed and supported by calls for the primacy of tikanga. To avoid trouble in the future it is important that this vital issue be known, discussed and debated so that New Zealanders can meet the challenges facing us and seek a better way to move forward as "one people". This book is an informative step in that direction.

              Unauthorized Power Institutional racism, love of wealth, ignorance of others, and lack of understanding, led to the shocking actions at Parihaka. These appalling actions reflected events carried out in the name of powerful governments throughout the world. They were all-powerful.... They knew what was best for all. Parihaka is used as an example of the damage caused through such narrow-minded colonial thinking and how such thoughts led on to problems in today's world. We have not learnt. And what of Maori? How are they faring as a result? The statistics are no prize for the New Zealand Government, but for some reason Maori are blamed for having the highest imprisonment rates, lowest education and housing figures, and poorest health data. And yet, before the New Zealand wars, the ancestors of these people were the most educated, and had the most successful farming and business enterprises in Aotearoa-New Zealand. What happened?

              By McKeown, Catriona

              One girl. One boy. And a friendship that could save them both. Good-girl Kat knew drinking alcohol at school would have serious consequences. But to protect her friend from being expelled, Kat lands herself a term's worth of detentions. Inside the detention room, she meets a stra...nge boy who obsessively draws dark pictures and covers his head with a grey hoodie. Little does she know, the hoodie hides a dark past ... An unlikely friendship forms between Kat and the boy in the hoodie. When she discovers a sinister truth he's been hiding, she somehow feels compelled to help him-but at what cost? And how much is she willing to risk in order to keep him safe? The Boy in the Hoodie is a real, unforgettable story about past scars and how the ones we love can sometimes heal them.
