  • Delivery & Returns
Fully and exclusively written in te reo Maori and aimed at Maori and non- Maori children aged seven to eleven, this book's lively stories tell the tales of some of the taonga Maori held at Aotearoa Ne... w Zealand's famous national museum, Te Papa, through appealing text and fantastic illustrations. The book's pukorero, or story teller, is Maui, the great Pacific hero and trickster. The stories are from both long ago and recent times and have been chosen in consultation with Te Papa's matauranga Maori curators and the relevant iwi. They range from how Ruhia's kaitaka, or cloak, saved the life of a young boy and why the band Herbs wrote a song about nuclear testing in the Pacific to Huria Matenga and the Shipwreck, Rata and the Children of Tane, Willie Apiata and the Tough Decision, Hinemoa and Tutanekai, Te Paea and the Ghost Waka, Kahe's Epic Swim, Heni and the Battle of Gate Pa, Kupe and the Giant Wheke and Tane and the Kete of Knowledge. Each story is told via illustrations created by young Maori artists, some have illustrated stories from their own iwi.
