              Set in the heart of rural New Zealand in the 1950s, this is the tale of two men, Tamihana Mahana (known as Bulibasha) and Rupeni Poata, fighting for Maori leadership in sport, kapa haka contests and finally the first every Golden Shears competition. Caught in the middle of thi...s clash between two great clans, Simeon, the teenage narrator and grandson of Bulibasha, struggles with his own feelings and loyalties as the battles rage. First published in 1994, Bulibasha won the Montana Book of the Year Award in 1995 and is probably Witi Ihimaera's most well-loved novel. It inspired the 2016 movie Mahana.

              Ira Takaro: Rethinking Health, Sport & Education in Aotearoa / NZ (Paperback)

              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.

              And in the night time we will dance in the moonlight to the quick, steady beats of the pa'u. The pa'u is the pulse of the Cook Islands, a rhythm carrying narratives of a culture to its people. But beyond the reach of its sound, on another shore, a community is working over the... course of decades to build a new life. Kura lands in the footsteps of his father, whose twenty-year estrangement has come to a head. Katerina starts planning for a future, but must bend to the whim of another. Ana is received into a sacred sisterhood. And an Island Mama sets out the rules for love. Beats of the Pa'u is a collection of stories about first- and second-generation Cook Islands New Zealanders living in 1950s to modern-day New Zealand. Powerful, poignant and gently funny, Beats portrays life lived uneasily in the tempo of a different place, by characters who are woven together through community, family and home.

              When Bob and Marlene Taylor sold their Upper Moutere hop farm lease, she said, "Good, now we can buy a house." He said, "No, we can buy a bulldozer." The Taylors and their three sons went on to turn a one-man forestry roading operation into one of the best-known contracting compa...nies in the Nelson Marlborough region. Bob developed his skills and his reputation as he moved from bulldozers to exca- vators, doing farm drainage work, laying pipes and building dams. He was alwaysan innovator, the first to take excavators into the forest and the first to modify and fabricate the buckets and attachments needed for the job. He built a skilled and loyal team around him and supported others in the industry. When he died suddenly at the age of 56 his sons Charlie and Matt stepped up and took over, and with Marlene's guiding hand and their brother Arthur's support they built the company to what it is today.
