Te Takarangi reaches 50 books
The joint Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) and Royal Society Te Apārangi project, Te Takarangi - which is celebrating a sample historical to contemporary 150 Māori non-fiction books - has recently reached the 50 book milestone.
From 13 February 2018, one book has been profiled each day of the working week, with the 150th publication to be announced during Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2018.
The 50th book was Whaiora, Māori Health Development – written by Professor Sir Mason Durie and published in 1994. Whaiora was the first of a series of Sir Durie’s scholarly publications in Māori health and documents progress in Māori health development over the previous century. It remains an influential publication for a growing Māori health workforce, for Māori health researchers and Māori community organisations.
NPM and the Royal Society Te Apārangi are looking forward to profiling the remaining 100 books over the coming months through to Māori Language Week in September.
