Today's Maori must live in a world that is dominated by European institutions. The ability to do so successfully depends on their constant vigilance in sustaining ther beliefs, their view of themselves and their notions of how the world works. Their membership in Maramatanga permits them to feel selected while they traverse a landscpae which has lost its familiar outlines. This guide is a compilation of 25 years of field work with a group of Maori. It is an examination of oral histories, notebooks of songs, diaries, accounts of pilgrimages, and life histories. Critical issues are addressed including, written and unwritten histories, colonialism, gender and membership in Maramatanga. This text examines in great detail what scholars of New Zealand have grown to understand, there is no monolithic Maori voice.
