Māori Place Names Explained (Pocket guide)
Know Your Māori Weaving (Pocket guide)
This book has an aim to bring Māori place names to life. It allows the reader to take a journey geographically from the north of New Zealand (Aotearoa) to Stewart Island (Rakiura).
Many of the place names relate to genealogical family trees, or whakapapa, or to the explorers, to the heroes, while other names celebrate the gods and natural features of the country. A treasure trove.
Where both English and Māori names describe a locality, both are given.
