About this title


Kama'atu are verses of wisdom that can bridge boundaries of culture and erudition. They form part of the everyday language of Maori Cook Islanders in chants, speeches and descriptive oral communication. This unique collection of contemporary and traditional verses link Maori nations and imagery to a more universal English-speaking audience while presenting an invaluable resource for dialogue, sermons or presentations in any language. Professor Jonassen's topical and organizational approach makes the collection easier to understand and utilize. Kama'atu maintains the integrity of the original vernacular expression as it underscores the power of images and the value of simplicity. It is a great resource book, entrenched in tradition yet practical and useable in the present day.
