All have been discussed and agreed on with local kaumatua (elders) and expertly translated by Merimeri Penfold, a kaumatua of the University of Auckland who is widely respected for her knowledge and feel for the Maori language. Photographs of the Muriwhenua landscape enhance the text.--Provided by the publisher.
