Do myths and legends have anything to teach us about understanding Maori values and society? Are they still relevant today? John Patterson encourages a more sensitive and sympathetic attitude among Pakeha people by showing how traditional Maori narratives -- what we still tend to call their myths and legends -- can open our eyes to some of the deeper aspects of Maori philosophical and political thought.
