Ani Mikaere

LikeMothstotheFlame Front Cover.jpg

Cost: $20

This thesis was submitted in 2016, in fulfilment of the requirements for Te Kāurutanga. Te Kāurutanga is unique to Te Wānanga o Raukawa. Responsibility for Te Kāurutanga rests with Ngā Purutanga Mauri who select and guide candidates through the programme and who confer the degree on behalf of the three founding iwi of the Wānanga, Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Raukawa and Ngāti Toa Rangatira.Like Moths to the Flame: A History of Ngāti Raukawa Resistance and Recovery explores the extent to which the unique qualities of Ngāti Raukawa thought have survived the encounter with European ideas. It argues that preservation of a distinctive Ngāti Raukawa intellectual tradition is crucial to the long term survival of Ngāti Raukawa as a people.

The Balance Destroyed
Ani Mikaere
With images by Robyn Kahukiwa
 
TheBalanceDestroyed front cover.jpg
Cost: $50

A popular view of Māori society is that it is inherently sexist, it excludes women’s voices and it values women less than men. In clear and powerful prose, Ani Mikaere presents her understanding of gender relationships before colonisation, and the effects of colonisation on these relationships. She explores Māori cosmogony; discusses the celebration of female sexuality; provides evidence of women as leaders, experts and repositories of knowledge; and offers a formidable critique showing that it is colonisation that has destroyed the balance between male and female in Māori society. This highly anticipated edition of The Balance Destroyed features a new preface by Ani Mikaere, and thought provoking images by award-winning artist Robyn Kahukiwa.

Tukua te reo kia whakaritorito, kia ingo anō ai te kakara o te kōrari ki te whenua!

Climate change, peak oil, food security, rampant consumerism, the struggle for Maori sovereignty – these issues can seem overwhelming for those of us who are primarily focussed on the day-to-day task of caring for our whānau.

Jessica Hutchings explains the political implications of the decisions that we make about growing and eating kai. In this book, she encourages us to take control over the food security of our whānau, providing practical advice on how to grow kai in accordance with the kaupapa of hua parakore, inspiring us with stories of hua parakore heroes and reassuring us that becoming a hua parakore gardener is a journey that anyone can embark on.
