Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Few understand the pivotal role T.W. Ratana played in reviving the Maori spirit during the two world wars, not only through his healing and teaching ministry but through bringing the Treaty of Waitangi back into the public mind and steering the political will to address Maori issues. Keith Newman has gathered together material that has previously only been available in te reo or has not been accessible to the public at all. At the same time he has acquired a significant collection of historical photographs; including imagery from Ans Westra from her collection of photographs taken at Ratana in 1962, 1972 and in recent years. This thoroughly researched, comprehensive book traces the connections between Ratana, the healer and prophet and political visionary, and the Maori prophetic and kotahitanga movements of the past 160 years. This landmark book brings together the hidden history of Ratana, the widespread nationwide influence of this pan-tribal movement and it is hoped it may restore to the morehu (the faithful survivors) a sense of their own heritage and destiny. Rediscovering Ratana also redresses the current lack of information and knowledge about the Ratana movement.Evolving over nearly 20 years, Keith Newman has gathered information and gained the confidence of key people within the Ratana movement in order to produce this fascinating volume of work.

Includes glossary of Maori words.
