              Creating useful and decorative pieces with natural materials is extremely enjoyable and satisfying. Many of the projects in this book can be achieved by those with little or no weaving experience, and there are projects that require some previous weaving knowledge for those who w...ant to extend their weaving repertoire or who like a challenge. From delicate cords for jewellery to rugged hefty thick ropes used in outdoor art, from useful bottle carriers and decorative flask holders to toys for children and pets, window blinds and table runners, mobiles and fiery dragons, or Taniwha, this book shows how basic weaving, knotting and plaiting techniques can be used for the creation of any number of useful, fun, and beautiful items with wide appeal. With its strength, durability, flexibility while green and hardness when dry, New Zealand flax is an ideal material for weavers to create practical items as well as decorative pieces. As a sustainable and biodegradable resource, it is a perfect weaving material for a world with too much plastic.

              Teine Samoa means Samoan girl. It's a label that carries with it an unspoken duty to obey, serve and respect your family and Samoan culture. But who can be teine Samoa? When should you be teine Samoa? And how can you be teine Samoa outside of Samoa? Lani is an afakasi, and is ...unsure of her Samoan heritage and what being Samoan even means. But one thing she knows for sure is that she's afraid of Vai and the 'Real Samoans'. Masina, the free-spirited daughter of a Church Minister, is bound by parental expectations and struggling to fulfill the destiny set by her parents. Teuila is the good Islander girl and proud teine Samoa who realises she doesn't want to be a 'switcher' anymore. How will these junior high school students learn to be, understand and fulfill their obligations as Teine Samoa, living in New Zealand? Teine Samoa is a journey of cultural identity and discovery for four junior high school students, their families, their teachers and, most importantly, anyone who has ever faced the challenges of being a teine Samoa.

              Aro-takaro are the 'face' of traditional Maori games. They are the iconic implements associated with indigenous games practices, rituals and protocols. A testament to their prolific ancient uses are the numerous games artefacts, vividly etched in millennia-old cave paintings, all... over Aotearoa/NZ. Aro-takaro were spiritually conceived from the environment by villagers and perfected as social and educational tools by tohunga, the intellectual giants of the day, known as Hohou-Rongo - revered games artisans and peace-makers. The Hohou-Rongo utilised aro-takaro as mechanisms for peace, enjoyment, social bonding and in education to make their tribespeople resilient and adaptive. Each of the 100 aro-takaro within this volume is illustrated, has a description of the materials it is made from and activities that it is synonymous with. The reader will immediately be able to visit their sacred forests, and with due reverence, identify resources with which to make aro-takaro. These artefacts are as diverse as parahirahi (games sandals) & pikipotae (peace headdresses), equipment for hakura & matamatarongo protocols ( peace dances) and ki (balls), pona (knots) and perepere (games pieces). Here then is a cultural resource which can link educationalists with some of the aro-takaro technologies, conservation practices and beliefs of our forebears.
