            When you first told me that you gave me the name of our tupuna so that I would be strong enough to hold our family inside my ribcage, I believed you. Here you are. Here is how I saw you, trapped in your own amber. Now it's time for you to believe me. Toku Papa is a bo...ok that serves as a map of survival for Maori growing up outside of their papakaika. These poems look at how we take the knowledge we are given by our ancestors and hide it beneath our tongues for safekeeping. They show us how we live with our tupuna, without ever fully understanding them. This book encompasses a journey spanning generations, teaching us how to keep the home fires burning within ourselves when we have forgotten where our homes are. But have our homes forgotten us? 'This book sings a song of connection and disconnection. It moves between the light and the dark as all living things must, and it stretches back to our ancestors and forward to our descendants, while exploring the difficulties of loving those who we should be closest to. This is a searching and generous collection of toikupu that slow time to a trickle just to reach in and tap directly into the wairua.' -essa may ranapiri 'Ruby is an incredible poet. Her poetry is utterly deft and agile, warm and heartbreaking.' -Tayi Tibble, Toi Maori Aotearoa

            In this collection of poetry Glenn Colquhoun writes to the young people he works with at the Horowhenua Youth Health Service. Tender and poignant, wondering and wry, here his words become small scissors, knives, bandages and balms. Gathered together they represent an inventory of... one doctor's consultations taken home, responses to those moments he might have woken in the middle of the night and wished he had said better.
