In Māori in Aotearoa New Zealand, Buddy Mikaere provides a highly readable historical overview of early settlement in New Zealand, and examines the impact of colonisation and later a developing urban world on Māori and their traditional way of life.

Today, the importance of marae and community remains strong, as do many time-honoured rituals.

The renaissance of Māori culture has included the revival of the language and the flourishing of creative arts, including:

  • whakairo – carving
  • kapa haka and haka – performing arts
  • waka ama – outrigger canoe racing
  • tā moko – tattooing
  • music, arts and crafts.

Māori in Aotearoa New Zealand introduces visitors and locals alike to the culture and customs of Māori in contemporary New Zealand.
