In the Maori world, taonga and stories are intimately connected. Be it a song or a weapon, a painting or a cloak, taonga open doorways to ancestral imaginings of time and place. In The Art of Taonga, Paul Tapsell takes us on a journey from before the time of Tupaea, a traveller o...n Cook's Endeavour in 1769, to today. He surveys the changing meanings of taonga, including the re-engagement by source communities with their ancestral treasures, arguing that rather than being fixed in the past, the dynamic concept of taonga always responds to changing contexts and conditions. Acknowledging the crisis facing marae communities, and the concurrent dislocation of urban Maori, Tapsell interrogates the precarious future of a guiding tradition that reaches back to ancestral Hawaiki.Read more
