First published in 1993, Ruka Alan Broughton's book on Ngati Ruanui leader Tiitokowaru is one of a small number of histories or biographies written in te reo Maori. Ngaa mahi a Tiitokowaru draws upon a wide range of Maori oral literature and is complemented by commentary and oral testimony provided to Ruka Alan Broughton in his youth by contemporaries of Tiitokowaru, a man whose place in the history of Aotearoa is legendary. This comprehensive work covers many facets of the life of Tiitokowaru, from his genealogy to his roles as a warrior, chief, tohunga and passive protestor. This new edition of Ngaa mahi a Tiitokowawu is one of four new editions of essential reo Maori texts released in 2024 by Te Herenga Waka University Press, in collaboration with Te Takarangi, a national programme celebrating matauranga Maori through Maori-authored works of non-fiction.
