Reed Book Of M Ori Mythology from the Author: Alexander Wyclif Reed. The Reed Book of Maori Mythology is a new, updated and revised version of A.W. Reed's classic A Treasury of Maori Folklore (1963). These vivid and entertaining stories have been revised by Ross Calman, and can now be enjoyed by a new generation of readers. The book tells the stories of the creation of the universe, of Rangi and Papa and the children of earth and sky, of the demigods Maui and Tawhaki, of supernatural monsters and fairies, and of heroes and lovers. For centuries Maori were isolated from the rest of the Polynesian world - indeed, from the rest of the world - and subsequently developed a remarkably rich, and in many ways unique, mythology. Far from being just entertainment - and the stories are very entertaining - these stories are part of a living, breathing culture. They are part of our heritage, both Maori and Pakeha."

The Ancient History Of The Maori His Mythology And Traditions from the Author: John White. First published between 1887 and 1890, this six-volume work, containing Maori texts with English translations and commentary, and engraved illustrations, was one of the first printed records of the oral traditions of the Maori. The project was commissioned by the New Zealand government in 1879 when it was observed that, due to the introduction of European culture and education, indigenous traditions were in danger of dying out. The material was collected by John White (1826-91), an ethnographer, public servant and writer who had arrived in New Zealand as a boy and first began documenting Maori poetry in the 1840s. Volume 3, published in 1887, includes myths of the rainbow god Uenuku, canoe migrations, and legends of the South Island Maori, many of them relating to ancestry, feuds and warfare.
