Pūrākau Māori myths Retold by Māori writers Edited by Witi Ihimaera and Whiti Hereaka

A lively retelling of pūrākau – Māori myths – By contemporary Māori writers.

Ancient Māori creation myths, portrayals of larger-than-life-heroes and tales of engrossing magical beings have endured through the ages. Some hail back to Hawaiki, some are firmly grounded in New Zealand and its landscape. Through countless generations, the stories have been reshaped and passed on. This new collection presents a wide range of traditional myths that have been retold by some of our best Māori wordsmiths. The writers have added their own creativity, perspectives and sometimes wonderfully unexpected twists, bringing new life and energy to these rich, spellbinding and significant taonga.

Take a fresh look at Papatūānuku, a wild ride with Māui, or have a creepy encounter with Rūruhi-Kerepō, for these and many more mythical figures await you.
