Abstract:

"Islands in the Ocean looks back through history in an attempt to trace the ancient origins of the Maori people. It considers where they may have come from, and how they journeyed across the Pacific to a new land they called Aotearoa. The book also examines patterns of settlement and other aspects of the New Zealand history of the Maori, following their arrival in Aotearoa. The author concludes with a commentary on life in a Maori community as she has seen and experienced it in her lifetime. "Islands in the Ocean" offers a thought-provoking insight into the origins of the Maori and their more recent history that will appeal to anyone with an interest in New Zealand's indigenous people." - BOOK JACKET.
