2001 first edition, 244 pages soft cover mint condition.

Te Atairangikaahu’s life of public engagements continued and she welcomed and entertained dignitaries. In 1970 she was made a dame, and she was awarded an honorary doctorate from Waikato University in 1973. She and Sir Edmund Hillary were the first to be inducted into the Order of New Zealand in 1987, and she was made an honorary doctor of laws by Victoria University of Wellington in 1999.

Under Te Atairangikaahu’s leadership and that of her stepbrother, Robert Mahuta, the matter of the raupatu (land confiscations) was finally settled. In 1995 Tainui–Waikato signed a settlement, the Crown compensating the tribe with $170 million, including the return of some land.

When Te Atairangikaahu died on 15 August 2006, she was the longest-serving Maori monarch, having reigned for 40 years. The high regard in which she was held was evident from the many thousands who attended her tangihanga, both Maori and Pakeha, as well as many foreign dignitaries. Please click here to ask a question
