In this essential guide to students of Maori language and culture, Cleve Barlow defines and discusses seventy important concepts in Maori culture--words as familiar to most Pakeha as aroha, marae, and tapu, or as unfamiliar as aitua, parekawakawa, and urupa. Drawing on the traditional knowledge of the whare wananga (school of learning) as well as on modern usage, Barlow provides short essay definitions in both English and Maori.
