Ngā Mōrehu = The survivors by Judith Binney( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the life history of eight Maori women ... connected with the faith known as Ringatu" -- Introduction
Redemption songs : a life of Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki by Judith Binney( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Te Kooti is most often portrayed as a guerrilla fighter, but this stereotype does little justice to the man. In war and in peace, in his struggle against confiscation and illegal purchase and in his founding of the Ringatu church, Te Kooti's overarching concern was to redeem his people and their land
Mihaia : the prophet Rua Kenana and his community at Maungapōhatu by Judith Binney( Book )

20 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rua Kenana was an extraordinary prophetic leader from the Urewera. Resisting threats to expel the Tuhoe people from their ancestral lands, he established a remarkable community at Maungapohatu, identifying himself as the 'Mihaia' or 'Messiah' for Tuhoe. Judith Binney, Gillian Chaplin and Craig Wallace researched the history of the community in the 1970s, working first with a collection of photographs that they took to the Urewera. Sharing these photographs with descendants of Rua and his followers, they found that 'strangers opened their hearts to us, and shared their stories'. This biographical account focuses on a dramatic moment in Urewera history, one that incorporated a shocking episode in early twentieth-century New Zealand. The rich photographic record documents not only the police assault on the Maungapohatu community but also the lives of the people and Rua's utopian vision. The prophet lived into the 1930s, a leader still working to support and sustain his followers. Described on publication as 'an unparalleled record of a community through time', this remarkable history has been in demand since first publication by Oxford University Press in 1979"--Publisher's description
The legacy of guilt : a life of Thomas Kendall by Judith Binney( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Kendall can be regarded as an archetypal figure: the Evangelical Englishman overturned by meeting Polynesia. In 1814, he was one of the first lay missionaries settled in New Zealand by the Church Missionary Society. They were devout but ill-educated, utterly unprepared for the life they were to lead, and for the society of the people they intended to convert
The people and the land = Te tangata me te whenua : an illustrated history of New Zealand, 1820-1920 by Judith Binney( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrated with paintings and photographs, it tells the story of two communities, Maori and Pakeha, over the years 1820-1920. While Maori and Pakeha shared many activities and pleasures - from community brass bands to the new trade union movement, from a day at the races to a yarn in the shearing shed - the two stories here show that they saw their mutual history through very different eyes. The People and the Land/Te Tangata me Te Whenua reveals conflicting understandings of the past, but makes possible too the bridging of such differences through knowledge. Together, text and images (many in full colour) create a stunning new presentation of New Zealand history. First published in 1990, The People and the Land/Te Tangata me Te Whenua is now reprinted for both general readers and students of New Zealand history

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tangata Whenua portrays the sweep of Māori history from Pacific origins to the twenty-first century. Through narrative and images, it offers an overview of the past, grounded in specific localities and histories"--Publisher information
Encircled lands : Te Urewera, 1820-1921 by Judith Binney( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the nineteenth century the Urewera was a remote but enticing wilderness except for the Maori who lived there, for them it was a sheltering homeland. In 1866-67 large areas were taken by confiscation or forced cession. At the end of the fighting in 1872, the Ureweras became an autonomous district, governed by its own leaders. In 1921-22, the Urewera Native Reserve was abolished in law. This book provides the historical context for Tuhoe's quest for the restoration of their 'nationhood'
The shaping of history : essays from the New Zealand journal of history( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of essays, writers explore the construction of history within a political process: the changing impact of the Treaty of Waitangi. Judith Binney looks at Maori oral narratives from colonial times, and Angela Ballara reinforces the importance of using Maori language sources
Stories without end : essays 1975-2010 by Judith Binney( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this collection stand alongside Judith Binney's ... histories of the Urewera and its people. Her writings reach out from these central texts, exploring sidepaths, offering other stories, presenting glimpses tangential to her historical narratives. The people we meet in the books: Rua Kenana and Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki, their colleagues and supporters, their wives and descendants; the remarkable leaders of the Urewera; the schoolteachers from Maungapohatu; the government men. Research on the early missionaries, too, has brought insights to their disorienting encounters with the Māori world. Tracing the tohunga Papahurihia through early documents places this elusive leader more centrally in the historical record. The stories in this collection are just that: narratives that flow one into another, filling out histories, bringing people out of the shadows, making scholarship live."--Back cover
Te Kerikeri 1770-1850 : the meeting pool( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acting as a 'meeting pool' for Maori and European in the early nineteenth century, the Kerikeri Basin is today one of the country's major heritage sites. When Anglican missionaries set up a station on the river below Kororipo pa in 1819, Kerikeri was already pivotal in the politics of the day. Kororipo, in the hands of Ngapuhi, controlled the route to the sea from inland Waimate. For a period the two cultures shared a 'middle ground' of learning and engagement. Here Revd William Yate worked with the Maori leaders who wrote to the King in 1831, leading to the Treaty-signing nine years later. By the 1850s, only James Kemp remained at the mission, and Maori were living under a new dispensation. Land everywhere was passing into the newcomers' hands. But the enduring emblems of the past - the surviving buildings, the archaeological sites, and the memories of wahi tapu - are here shared by both cultures
Untold lives : when the elders tell their stories by Judith Binney( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tangata whenua : a history by Atholl Anderson( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story begins with the migration of ancestral peoples out of South China, some 5,000 years ago. Moving through the Pacific, these early voyagers arrived in Aotearoa early in the second millennium AD, establishing themselves as tangata whenua in the place that would become New Zealand. By the nineteenth century, another wave of settlers brought new technology, ideas and trading opportunities - and a struggle for control of the land. Survival and resilience shape the history as it extends into the twentieth century, through two world wars, the growth of an urban culture, rising protest, and Treaty settlements. Today, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Māori are drawing on both international connections and their ancestral place in Aotearoa"--Publisher's website. The first third of the book explores the Orthodox theory of Māori origins and settlement in Aotearoa
Myth and memory : stories of Indigenous-European contact by John S Lutz( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Myth and Memory explores the narratives of indigenous and newcomer populations from New Zealand and across North America, from the Lost Colony of Roanoke on the Atlantic seaboard of the United States to the Pacific Northwest and as far as Sitka, Alaska. It illustrates how indigenous and explorer accounts of the same meetings reflect fundamentally different systems of thought, and focuses on the cultural misunderstandings embedded in these stories. The contributors discuss the contemporary relevance, production, and performance of Aboriginal and European contact narratives, and introduce new tools for interpreting the genre. They argue that we are still in the contact zone, striving to understand the meaning of contact and the relationship between indigenous and settler populations."--Jacket
