Nga Moteatea Bk & 2 CDs The Songs Part 4
by Ngata, Apirana Sir & Mead, Hirini Moko Trans.

ISBN: 9781869403867
PUBLISHER: Auckland University Press
PAGES: 389

Singing of waiata, of songs and chants, has always been an integral part of Maori life. Today waiata are heard in formal ceremonies on marae, and at casual, social events. But their texts alone make fascinating reading as an archive of historical, cultural and tribal life. Over 40 years Sir Apirana Ngata collected and recorded hundreds of songs and chants from the iwi of Aotearoa which became the four volumes of Nga Moteatea. The first three volumes included translations and annotations by Ngata and the Ngati Maniapoto scholar, Pei Te Hurinui Jones. The contents of Part IV, the fourth volume, were not available until after the deaths of Ngata and Pei. It was first published in 1990 as an edition of the Maori texts, edited by Tamati Maturangi Reedy from Ngata's manuscripts, but without translation to English. This new edition of Part IV comes with a translation of the waiata and annotations The translation to English opens up to a wide readership, the beauty of the poetic language of the waiata and a wealth of information about historic events and cultural practices of Maori life.
