e-Mana Wahine Reader (Volume 1)


Also available as a book,

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

The Mana Wahine Readers were originally published by Te Kotahi Research Institute and have been republished by Te Tākupu, Te Wānanga o Raukawa in 2022. They were edited by Leonie Pihama, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Naomi Simmonds, Joeliee Seed-Pihama and Kirsten Gabel. Robyn Kahukiwa’s stunning artwork encases these collections of writing by wāhine Māori.
