Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Within these pages are the words of our Grandmothers, written in this time to spread the message of Peace and Hope. WHISPERS OF WAITAHA: TRADITIONS OF A NATION is the second book in the Waitaha Histories. "Ata whakarongo ake e moko, Ki enei korero o ou matua tupuna, I haere tawhiti mai ki tata." "Listen carefully moko to these the words of your parents and grandparents that have come here from afar."
