Summary: "Understanding what drives enterprise within an indigenous cultural space is not widely understood in New Zealand. Wh�ariki reveals how kin-based business ventures created by M�aori have promoted social, economic and environmental well-being from the whenua (land) up. Its core is eight case studies - some arising from iwi-driven ideas, some ideas from marae-based wh�anau. These range from a bee school in Northland, ginseng growing in the King Country, to the rehabilitation of M�aori prisoners in Dunedin and a web-engaged response to accessing tribal marae. Always reaching into ancestral ties and lessons to provide guidance and foundation for their ideas, these businesses are wrapped in cultural approaches that engage kin communities in improving the wellbeing of their iwi, hapu and whanau.This book explores the successes, the failures, the learnings and the futures of these opportunities for M�aori"--Publisher's website.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Told through case studies of entrepreneurs, companies and social enterprises, Whariki weaves together business theory and day-to-day practice to analyse Maori commercial leadership. From Tai Tokerau (Northland) to Otepoti (Dunedin), these are stories of business leadership informed by traditional values in a modern setting. Academically rigorous yet easy to access, Whariki is an essential companion to the Maori economy.
