Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Since European colonization, Maori and their needs have been ignored, marginalized, or forcibly assimilated with those of the European. As a result, Maori have continually searched for unity, in a series of political, religious, and social movements. This book explores Kotahitanga: theconcerted operation of rangatira (elders) to give effect to a developing notion of collective Maori sovereignty.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

CHOICE Review

For over a decade, the Maoris, the indigenous people of New Zealand, have been engaged in a serious analysis of their cultural heritage and their relationship with the dominant European population. Stimulated to action by the sesquicentennial commemoration of the Treaty of Waitangi by which some 50 Maori chiefs first acknowledged Queen Victoria's paramountcy in 1840, Maori political, academic, and spiritual leaders formed the National Maori Congress in 1990 to formalize and conceptualize Maori pursuit of kotahitanga, or ethnic and national identity. This volume grew from the issues that came before that Congress. In separate chapters, Cox (Massey Univ., New Zealand) explores the British concept of Maori sovereignty and its effects; Maori social organization and leadership from a historical perspective, as well as the interaction between kinship units and intertribal unity in military and economic ventures; the Treaty of Waitangi and early colonial administration; and problems concerning tribal structures and development, assimilation, amalgamation, and particular Maori sectarian interests. Its short conclusion notwithstanding, the volume contributes to understanding kotahitanga and provides a record of the formative years of the National Maori Congress. A difficulty is the extensive use of Maori terms that are neither defined nor explained. Research historians, anthropologists, graduate students, and faculty. W. W. Reinhardt; Randolph-Macon College
