              In this landmark educational publication researcher Harko Brown explains the tenets of Ira Takaro Theory. Brown contends that since the mid-1800's there has been a lack of attention to ira takaro (or the schema) of Tamariki Maori in our health, sports and educational institutes.... He says this has often negatively impacted Tamariki Maori via scornful social discourses, for example, by educators critical of Maori children's in-school behaviours, and in their overall academic and health statistics. He describes the natural expressions of ira takaro in Polynesian children as pronounced and packed with powerful potential which at present is much maligned and misunderstood in general by hauora providers, particularly by those in the fields of mental health and child psychology, by sports and recreational providers and in teaching professions.

              This is a book about flower arranging from the perspective of a gardener. Harvesting from the garden means short, wonky stems, bruised petals, insects crawling out of blooms and the open invitation to claim a weed or vege as vase fodder. Flowers for Friends is both a reflecti...on, and story of the seasons brought indoors by Julia Atkinson-Dunn when harvesting from her garden and foraging in Canterbury, New Zealand. Written in her signature casual tone (as seen in her first book Petal Power), Julia offers an accessible guide to picking, conditioning and arranging home-grown treasures, celebrating their quirks and encouraging unexpected combinations. Seasonal chapters profile arrangements she has made, detailing plants in season and inviting readers to play without the hunt for perfection, or restraint.

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.

              A joyride to the digital frontier of sex from one of Aotearoa's most exciting young artists. No holes barred. Rough sketches of suburban banality provide the perfect set up: A WINZ officer in a deadbeat Northland town; a grieving middle-aged church-goer; a devoted dad with ten...ure and a barbecue. Bland, but just bland enough for the strangest things to appear. With each key command on Sam Te Kani's possibility machine comes biblical ZIP files, werewolf hustlers, and a lidless box of multi-coloured dildos. Stories that begin with expected genre tropes transform brazenly into outrageous sex. Quick once-overs overflow into gratuitous detail, and reality itself melts into an interface. Please, Call Me Jesus is the debut collection of erotic stories from one of Aotearoa's most exciting young artists. Irreverent, audacious, and full of delight, it offers the entertainment of seduction alongside new technological possibilities. A pulp paperback with a gaze toward the future of sex. A breath of fresh air amid the terrible earnestness of so much contemporary fiction.
