            This major book tells the story of four expeditions made by staff of the Dominion Museum between 1919 and 1923, setting them in the context of a series of collaborations between Maori and non-Maori leaders in New Zealand in the wake of the New Zealand Wars. Written by some of N...ew Zealand's best-known experts on te Ao Maori and its intersection with the Pakeha world, the text was developed with the descendants of iwi with whom the expeditions worked. Richly illustrated with historic images and contemporary work, it is a landmark publication.

            Pearls of wisdom contained in proverbs - whakatauk I - have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Maori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they surprise, en...gendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri Ora links whakatauk I to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues - wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief - stem from the science of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life. Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Maori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.
