              Pounamu Pounamu is classic Ihimaera and also classic New Zealand literature. First published in 1972, it was Witi's first book, which as he says in the new introduction 'fulfilled a childhood vow- to write about Maori using his own self and home place'. The vivid stories in this ...collection not only explore but also celebrate what it is like to be a New Zealander, and they do so from a lively Maori perspective. The seeds of Ihimaera's later works were first introduced in this ground-breaking collection- The Whale Rider in his story 'The Whale'; The Rope of Man in 'Tangi'; the character of Simeon from Bulibasha, King of the Gypsies in 'One Summer Morning'; and the themes of aroha (love), whanaungatanga (kinship) and manaakitanga (supporting each other), which are so integral to Ihimaera's work.

Its teachings are grounded in whanaungatanga, Maoritanga, religious values and academic excellence. The college has given rise to numerous Maori trailblazers in a variety of fields. This book brings together the recollections of former pupils, staff and whanau (over 160 interviews were conducted). At its core, it is a story of sisterhood.

              Despite some achievements gained during the indigenous struggle for rights and recognition, many indigenous groups continue to fight against unjust social, political, environmental, and historical conditions. Ideas which engage with the lived experiences of communities themselves..., such as the human development and capability approach, are crucial if we are to understand the conditions in which the struggle for self-determination take place. Indigenous Peoples and the Capability Approach introduces readers to the human development and capability approach and explores how it might be used to help us to understand the values, needs, and aspirations of indigenous peoples. Split into three handy sections, the book explores the key concepts, methods and applications of the capability approach and indigenous perspectives to well-being and development. Using a range of examples and case studies from Maori, First Nations, Native American, Aboriginal, African, and Asian indigenous communities, the book provides a window into the lived experiences of some of the most marginalised and vulnerable groups in the world. The first book to bring indigenous perspectives into conversation with the capability approach, Indigenous Peoples and the Capability Approach will be essential reading for both students and policy makers with an interest in the well-being and development of indigenous communities.

              From author Andrea Denish (Everybody Loves a Parade!*) and illustrator BlueBean (Gamer Baby (TM)) comes a touching story about new siblings, greetings, languages, and love. A special day. A special place. How will you greet a special face? A wink? A pat? A tap-tap tug? A wave? A ...shake? A big bear hug? A young child searches for the best way to greet the newest member of their family. Along the way, you too can discover how to welcome the world into your heart in different languages, gestures, and places. With rhyming text, heart-warming art, and nonfiction backmatter, The Way We Say Hello takes you as far as Tibet and as near as your front yard as you learn greeting after greeting. You can say namaste, howdy, and annyeong. You can use a traditional greeting like the Maori hongi or European cheek kisses. You can use sign language to greet those who are hard of hearing, or send a card to someone far away. There are so many ways to greet someone new, no matter where they're from or what language they speak-so how will YOU say hello?
