Description

Do myths and legends have anything to teach us about understanding Māori values and society? Are they still relevant today?

John Patterson encourages a more sensitive and sympathetic attitude among Pākehā people by showing how traditional Māori narratives — what we still tend to call their myths and legends — can open our eyes to some of the deeper aspects of Māori philosophical and political thought.
