Ka rite te k?para e k? nei i te ata. It is like a bellbird singing at dawn. Like the clear morning song of te k?parapara, the bellbird, this book aims to allow the M?ori world to speak for itself through an accessible introduction to M?ori culture, history and society from an indigenous perspective. In twenty-one illustrated chapters, leading scholars introduce M?ori culture (including tikanga on and off the marae and key rituals like p?whiri and tangihanga), M?ori history (from the beginning of the world and the waka migration through to M?ori protest and urbanisation in the twentieth century), and M?ori society today (including twenty-first century issues like education, health, political economy and identity). Each chapter provides a descriptive narrative covering the major themes, written in accessible formal English, including appropriate references to te reo M?ori and to the wider Pacific. Chapters are illustrated with a mixture of images, maps and diagrams as well as relevant songs and sayings. Te K?parapara is an authoritative and accessible introduction to the past, present and future of the M?ori world for students and general readers. Ko te manu kai i te miro n?na te ngahere, ko te manu kai i te m?tauranga n?na te ao.The bird that feasts on miro tree berries belongs to the bush, the bird that feasts on knowledge belongs to the worldIn twenty-one illustrated chapters, leading scholars introduce M?ori culture (including tikanga on and off the marae and key rituals like p?whiri and tangihanga), M?ori history (from the beginning of the world and the waka migration through to M?ori protest and urbanisation in the twentieth century), and M?ori society today (including twenty-first century issues like education, health, political economy and identity).
