To most New Zealanders, the word 'Hauhau' conjures up a picture of bloodthirsty fanaticism. This book, the definitive study of the Pai Marire or 'Hauhau' Māori movement in the 1860s, presents a different view. Pai Marire is shown as being a search for ways of meeting European settlement and domination, and of using European skills and literacy, on Māori terms and without compromising Māori identity. Sources include the Ua Rongopai notebook, which contains a record of the words of Te Ua Haumēne, the prophet of Pai Marire, himself.
