  • Description

    In 2019 Te Kotahi Research Institute collated and compiled a selection of papers, written between 1999 to 2019 by wahine Maori across a range of discipline, about their experience as wahine Maori in Aoteroa New Zealand. Published in two volumes, Mana Wahine Reader 1 (1987-1998) and Mana Wahine Reader 2 (1999-2019) present wahine Maori at the coalface within their respective institutions, iwi or hapu - managing students, the Academy and even at times their own expectations.

    The Mana Wahine Readers were originally published by Te Kotahi Reseacrh Institute and have been republished by Te Takupu, Te Wananga o Raukawa in 2022. They were edited by Leonie Pihama, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Naomi Simmonds, Joeliee Seed-Pihama and Kirsten Gabel. Robyn Kakukiwa's artwork encases these collections or writing by wahine Maori.
