Summary "This book aims to allow the Māori world to speak for itself through an accessible introduction to Māori culture, history and society from an indigenous perspective. In twenty-one illustrated chapters, leading scholars introduce Māori culture (including tikanga on and off the marae and key rituals like pōwhiri and tangihanga), Māori history (from the beginning of the world and the waka migration through to Māori protest and urbanisation in the twentieth century), and Māori society today (including twenty-first century issues like education, health, political economy and identity)"--Publisher information
