In 2018, we curated the Te Takarangi Book List: a collection of 150 Māori-authored non-fiction books. The list profiles some of the important Māori leaders, thinkers and authors of our time. From the first book published about the Māori language in 1815 to the works of current Māori scholars, researchers and writers making their mark and claiming a voice in the research environment of Aotearoa New Zealand, this is a sample list to celebrate.
Nō te tau 2001 i whakatūria ai e Ako Aotearoa (National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence) tētahi tohu hei whakanui i ngā mahi a te tangata e whakaako ana i te taumata takiura. Me whakaatu te kaiwhiwhi tohu i tana ū roa ki ngā taumata tiketike rawa i tana mahi whakaako. Tekau mā rua ngā kaiwhiwhi toa i ia tau, kātahi ka whiriwhirihia ai e tētahi kōmiti kaiwhakawā kia kotahi te tangata e whiwhi nei i te Tohu Tiketike o te Pirimia. Mō ngā tau e whā kua hipa ake nei i riro i ngā kaiako Māori te tohu tiketike nei.
