Through the eye of the needle : a Māori elder remembers

This is a unique ethnography that follows in the tradition of the highly successful book by Marjorie Shostak (NISA: THE LIFE AND WORDS OF A !KUNG WOMAN.) Here, the voice of Heeni, a relative of the current Maori Queen, eloquently chronicles the history of the Maori of New Zealand and the adaptations they have made to survive as a group in the modern world.
