Nga Tai Matatu: Tides of Maori Endurance

Author(s): Mason Durie

Maori Non-fiction

<i>Nga Tai Matatu: Tides of Maori Endurance</i> describes and analyses the position of the Maori people and Maori interests at the start of the third millennium. It also recognises the journeys from the past and makes projections into the future. The book builds on the highly successful <i>Te Mana te Kawanatanga: The Politics of Maori Self Determination</i> but also introduces new issues and canvasses recent developments that have influenced Maori lives and Maori resources. Development is an ongoing process that has distant beginnings and no real ending. That sense of eternity is reflected in the Maori title; like the changing nature of the tide, Maori fortunes also change. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of research relating specifically to Maori over many fields. It presents a carefully structured and argued overview of the background, history, experience, and aspirations of the indigenous people of New Zealand, and develops a wide-ranging framework within which Maori development can be considered. The author draws on published evidence and uses analytical models that are consistent with Maori aspirations and priorities. The book contributes towards better understanding of the Maori position and considers the challenges that lie ahead.
