Abstract:

The first paperback edition of this classic A.W. Reed title remains true to the original vision - to create a highly accessible reference to the traditional life and customs of Māori. Taonga Tuku Iho translates to treasures from the past that have been handed down to us. This superb resource of information about early Māori is now available to a wider audience. Originally published in 1963 (and reprinted every two to three years until the early 1980s), with a second edition published in 2002, the book has been edited and updated by Buddy Mikaere and repackaged with an attractive new softcover. The text is arranged in alphabetical entries that cover agriculture, fishing, gardening, hunting, games, building, craft, forest lore and ceremony - all the major elements of pre-European Māori life. Detailed and instructive line drawings appear on almost every page. Colour and black and white photographs of Māori artefacts are inserted as wraps. From visitors to New Zealand to Kiwi natives, children to adults, this easy-to-follow home reference guide is ideal for anybody interested in learning more about Māori culture and customs.--Publisher.
