Description

This classic text on Maori culture collects indigenous New Zealand songs recorded over a period of 40 years by a respected Maori leader and distinguished scholar. The essence of Maori culture and its musical tradition is exhibited in the original song texts, translations, audio CDs, and notes from contemporary scholars featured in this new edition. This rare cultural treasure makes accessible a fleeting moment in Maori history when traditional practices and limited experience with the outside world allowed indigenous songs and customs to flourish.

Author Biography

Sir Apirana Ngata (Ngati Porou), 1874-1950, was a leading Maori figure, a land reformer, politician and scholar. He made a vital contribution to the revival of the Maori race in the early 20th century and is the subject of Ranginui Walker's recent biography. Jeny Curnow and Jane McRae have edited the new edition of Nga Moteatea for the Polynesian Society.
