              This is a traditional story told in te reo Maori from the perspective of the Kahui Maunga people about Ngake and Whataitai. These two taniwha inhabited Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington Harbour, long before the ancestral migrations. The story tells how the shape and landscape... of Wellington, its harbour and the Lower Hutt area came about because of the actions of Ngake and Whataitai. Long ago, Te Whanganui a Tara was an enclosed lake, but Ngake forced his way out into the sea by battering through the clenched teeth of the fish of Maui to allow the fish to breathe. Whataitai was washed down the throat of the fish, causing it to cough, and Whataitai and three morsels flew out. The morsels became islands in the harbour, but Whataitai was stranded and grew weak and died, becoming part of the land around the harbour

              "Polynesian Panthers records the Pacific rights and social activist movement in New Zealand, told by those who were there. Forming in 1971, the Polynesian Panthers sought to raise consciousness and took action in response to the racism and discrimination Pacific peoples faced in ...New Zealand in the 1970s and 1980s. The Panthers organised prison visit programmes and sporting and debating teams for inmates; provided a halfway-house service for young men released from prison; ran homework centres; and offered 'people's loans', legal aid and food banks that catered for 600 families at their height. Drawing on interviews, memoirs, poetry, newspaper articles and critical analysis, Polynesian Panthers is a thought-provoking account of this period in New Zealand"--Publisher information.

              This collection brings together over forty years of thought and comment by Dr Whatarangi Winiata on Maori spirituality, social development, education and political affairs. Each chapter discusses the importance and impact of Maori management of Maori matters and the ongoing pur...suit of tino rangatiratanga in all areas of life. Dr Winiata has worked to achieve Maori development, wellbeing and attainment of aspirations over decades: driving the iwi development programme Whakatupuranga Rua Mano that led to the foundation of the first contemporary wananga, Te Wananga o Raukawa; being key in restructuring the working of Te Hahi Mihingare; galvanising the New Zealand Maori Council to hold the Crown accountable over fisheries, forestry, language and broadcasting; and co-founding the Maori Party with Dame Tariana Turia and Sir Pita Sharples. These papers, curated by Dr Winiata and Daphne Luke, provide an analysis of recent Maori experience, pursuit of self-determination and history of Aotearoa.
