Mo tatou, a, mo ka uri a muri ake nei. For us and our children after us.

Tangata Ngai Tahu remembers and celebrates the rich and diverse lives of the people of Ngai Tahu. Spanning time, geography and kaupapa, fifty biographies bring Ngai Tahu history into the present. The people in this book have contributed to their iwi, hapu and whanau in myriad ways: here are tohunga and rangatira, community leaders, champions of Te Kereme, activists and scholars, fishermen and farmers, sportspeople, weavers, musicians and many more. All are descendants of Waitaha, Ngati Mamoe and Ngai Tahu; united by whakapapa, they are Tangata Ngai Tahu.

Produced by the Ngai Tahu Archives Team to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the Ngai Tahu Deed of Settlement, the book is beautifully and generously illustrated. Photographs have been sourced from whanau collections, the Ngai Tahu Archive and external institutions. Together these images constitute a tribal family album that is a taonga tuku iho.

Te Pae Korako (the Ngai Tahu Archive Advisory Committee) has guided this publication, which is intended as the first in a series of biographical volumes.
