    Title: Nou te Ao, e Hika e! (Oh The Places You'll Go Te Reo Version)
    Author: SEUSS DR (TRANSLATED BY KELLY KARENA)

    He whakamaori i ta Dr. Seuss pakiwaitara rongonui, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

    ‘Me mihi ka tika, te toa o te ra! Turou, Hawaiki! To pai! Wehi na!’

    Topa mai, taka mai, ko nga piki me nga heke o te ao o te tangata te aronga nui o tenei korero reka na te matanga, na Dr. Seuss. He kupu akiaki kei roto e maumahara ai te tangata ki ona painga, e mataara ai ki nga uauatanga, me te toro matatoa atu ki te ao e tawhiri mai ana.

    ‘He koi koe a-runga. He kama a-raro. He kakano koe e kore e ngaro.’

    I Nou te Ao, e Hika e!, kua mau i a Karena Kelly te paki, te toi, te taki me te koi o Seuss, e mohio whanuitia ana, i tana tarai i te kupu hei reo Maori mo te pakiwaitara rongonui nei.

    A Maori language translation of Dr. Seuss’s classic for young and old, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

    ‘Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!’

    From soaring high-flyers to lurches and slumps, Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You’ll Go! speaks to the ups and downs of life. It encourages us all to remember our strengths, recognise the challenges, and grab life with both hands.

    ‘You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.’

    In Nou te Ao, e Hika e!, Karena Kelly brilliantly captures Seuss’s verbal wit and wisdom, and his trademark rhythm and rhyme, while finding this great story its Maori voice.

    Te Kaituhi / Author

    No te tau 1904 a Theodor Seuss Geisel whanau mai ai i Springfield, i Massachusetts – ko Ted te ingoa i mohiotia ra e ona hoa, ko Dr. Seuss ki te hia nei miriona tangata e monoa ana ki ana mahi. Mutu ana tana ako ki te Kareti o Dartmouth, i New Hampshire, ki te whare wananga o Oxford hoki, i Ingarangi, ka huri ia ki nga mahi tuhi pakiwaituhi mo te maheni, ki nga mahi whakatairanga ano hoki. Ka tere kawea ana tini pukenga ki te tuhituhi pukapuka ma te tamariki. No te tau 1937 tangia ai tana pukapuka tuatahi And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, a, nui atu i te ono tekau atu ano nga pukapuka ma te tamariki kua puta i a ia, ko etahi o nga tino pukapuka o te ao, e arohaina nuitia ana e te iti me te rahi – ko The Cat in the Hat (no te tau 1957), ko How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (no te tau 1957) ko Green Eggs and Ham (no te tau 1960), me The Lorax (no te tau 1971). Ko Oh, the Places You’ll Go! ta Seuss kupu ohaki, i tangia i te tau i mua i tana matenga, i tona tau waru tekau ma whitu.

    Theodor Seuss Geisel – known as Ted to his friends and as Dr. Seuss by his millions of fans – was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children’s books. His first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937 and he went on to publish more than sixty of the most beloved children’s books of all time, from The Cat in the Hat (1957) and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957) to Green Eggs and Ham (1960) and The Lorax (1971). Published one year before his death at age eighty-seven, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is Dr Seuss’s farewell salute.

    Te Kaiwhakamaori / Translator

    Ko te reo me te wetereo Maori te kai a Dr Karena Kelly (Ngapuhi, Ngati Hine). E whakaako ana ia ki te hia nei kaupapa reo Maori, ko nga kura reo a-rohe, a-motu ano hoki etahi, a, e tohutohu ana i nga tini hinonga huri noa i Aotearoa ki nga kaupapa reo. He pukenga a Karena i Te Herenga Waka, i Te Whanga-nui-a- Tara, i reira ra puta ai tona ihu ki tana tohu kairangi i te tau 2015. He ika a Whiro ia no Te Panekiretanga o te Reo, he kaiwhakamaori ano hoki no te Toi Reo Maori. He kanorau ana whakamaoritanga tuhinga auaha, he toi kupu na Homer, na Apollinaire, na Katherine Mansfield, na Julia Donaldson hoki. No onamata etahi, no na tata nei etahi atu. Katoa ana whakamaoritanga o nga pukapuka ma te tamariki, he hua no te awhero nui kia huhua, kia kounga hoki nga pukapuka reo Maori hei panui tahi ma raua ko tana tama nohinohi, ko Asher. Ko te whakamaoritanga o ta Seuss Oh, the Places You'll Go!, ko tana koha ki tana tama, i tana huritau tuarima.

    Dr Karena Kelly is a specialist in Maori language and linguistics – teaching into a variety of Maori language fora, including regional and national kura reo, and providing strategic and linguistic advice to organisations throughout New Zealand. Karena lectures at Victoria University of Wellington, her alma mater, where she graduated with a PhD in 2015. She is also a graduate of Te Panekiretanga o te Reo, the Institute of Excellence in the Maori Language, and a Toi Reo Maori licensed translator. Her literary translation portfolio is diverse, including the works of Homer and Apollinaire, Katherine Mansfield and Julia Donaldson. Her translations of children’s literature are borne of her desire for an abundance of great books in te reo Maori to share with her young son, Asher. The translation of Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was her gift to him for his fifth birthday.

    Title: Te Kai A Te Rangatira: Leadership From The Maori World
    Author: TAPIATA RAWIRI & SMITH RENEE & AKUHATA-BROWN MARCU

    ‘Awe-inspiring collective wisdom and a snapshot into the current state of Maori leadership’ – this extraordinary book of interviews and photographs enriches our understanding of what it means to be a leader. In 2017 a group of rangatahi came together with the kaupapa of making a contribution to their communities. Their path led to an exploration of Ma ori leadership – its origins and values, and the life experiences that nurture rangatiratanga across nga rohe, iwi and hapu. And so Te Kai a te Rangatira came to be. A collective of rangatahi conducted in-depth interviews with more than 100 Ma ori leaders spanning the length and breadth of Aotearoa. Some are known best within their rohe; others will be familiar across the motu. James Te Wharehuia Milroy, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Che Wilson, Moana Jackson, Tipene O’Regan, Tina Ngata, Derek Lardelli, Patricia Grace, Annette Sykes – these and many more kaikorero have contributed. The result is a collective wisdom with powerful potential for the generations to come. In November 2020, Te Kai a te Rangatira finds expression in a landmark book, with text in both Te Reo Maori and English accompanied by superb portrait photography. Inspiring, informative, challenging, warm, humorous and engaging – this is an exceptional book. Created by rangatahi first of all for rangatahi, it is also for everyone who cares about the people of this country. About the editors The editors of Te Kai a te Rangatira are Rawiri J.Tapiata, Renee Smith and Marcus Akuhata-Brown. Surrounding these editors is a much larger group of volunteer rangatahi, who have come together with different skills and from different backgrounds, to contribute to this book and the wider kaupapa.

    Title: Te Manu Huna a Tane - The Hidden Birds of Tane
    Author: GILLAM JENNIFER

    This special photo book documents a wananga or class for three generations of women from Ngati Torehina Ki Mataka to learn the customary practice of pelting North Island brown kiwi so their feathers can be used for weaving. This passing on of customary knowledge developed out of a partnership between conservationists and weavers that returned accidentally killed kiwi to the hapu or family of the rohe or district in which they were found. Weaving, perhaps the preeminent form of Maori women's cultural expression, was in serious decline in New Zealand until the 1950s, when a concerted effort was made by Maori women to preserve and maintain it and to highlight the need to protect vital natural resources. Formal training is now available through universities and polytechnics, but traditionally weaving has been taught within hapu, usually by a mother, aunt or grandmother honouring protocols and restrictions to maintain the integrity of the discipline. It offers a particular perspective on the contemporary hapu-led cultural practices of Maori women and their intersection of the sacred and profound in the everyday. It also brings a greater understanding of conservation efforts and, in particular, of how the Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai works closely with tangata whenua.

    Title: Water Rights for Ngai Tahu: A Discussion Paper
    Author: TAU TE MAIRE

    In 'Water Rights for Ngai Tahu', Te Maire Tau considers the historical and political framework that has contributed to the current state of water rights in the Ngai Tahu takiwa. He explores the customary, legal and Treaty frameworks that feed into the debate regarding the ownership of water. From 1844 to 1864 the Crown purchased more than 34.5 million acres of land from Ngai Tahu, but in most purchase
    deeds water is not mentioned. How does this play into claims to water? Should the Treaty be relied upon? How far can kaitiakitanga take us if the goal is mana motuhake and tino rangatiratanga?

    In this short book Te Maire Tau lays out the historical background and context to water rights, and opens a discussion about where to proceed next in determining a Ngai Tahu position on water.

    Title: Words of a Kaumatua
    Author: WILLIAMS HAARE

    A kaumatua reflects in poetry and prose, in te reo and English, on his journey from te ao Maori on the East Coast to contemporary Auckland.
    Ko te kopara anake e tarere ki te puihi o te makauri. Oti rawa! Kia oti rawa e!

    Haare Williams grew up a rural, te reo-speaking childhood, with his Tuhoe grandparents on the shores of Ohiwa Harbour, It was a world of Tane and Tangaroa, Te Kooti and the old testament, of Nani Wai and curried cockle stew. Like many Maori of his generation, Williams learnt English at school and entered a new world moving to Auckland. Through the Maori arts movement, through protest and the rise of Maori broadcasting, Williams has witnessed and played a part in the changing shape of Maoridom. And in his poetry, in te reo and English, he has a way of capturing both the wisdom in te ao Maori and the transformation of that world over the last 50 years.

    This book edited and introduced by Witi Ihimaera brings together Haare Williams’s poetry, talks, writings, and photography to produce a work that is a biography of the man—and his times—in poetry and prose. The book is in four sections: poems from the world Haare was born in; poetry from the world he began to live in; poems of the world he confronted; and poetry from the world he lives in now.

    The book is a celebration of the Kaumatua as well as an exemplar of his wisdom.
