Title:Mai I Rangiatea: Maori Wellbeing and Development
Auckland University Press, 1997. Crease to front cover. Mai i Rangiatea provides some Maori perceptions of healthy growth and development. It introduces a Maori developmental discourse which affirms a cultural base with an affinity to the discourses of other indigenous peoples. Western concepts of human development have oversimplified the process by emphasizing individuality as the core, then generalizing to the whole. Maori acknowledgment of the interdependency between the individual and the group gives some basis for alternative discourses.
