"Provides a unique explanation of the Māori world for Pākehā and Māori wishing to learn more about customary practices, values and protocols."
The book we've all been needing for decades - a unique explanation of the Maori world for Pakeha, and for Maori people wishing to learn more about tikanga. With simple lucidity and great expertise, Keri Opai shares the spirit and meaning of what it is to be Maori in the 21st century, dispelling myths and misconceptions and providing a solid introduction to the Maori way of life.
In English and some Māori.
