Description

From Kuini Rikihana, author of Illustrated Māori Myths and Legends, comes Manawa Hine, a collection of adventure-packed stories celebrating the feats of fearless Māori women within the domain of Hinemoana.

Kahe Te Rau o te Rangi swims a treacherous channel in the dark of night to save her people, with her baby on her back.
Hinepoupou, left for dead by her abusive husband, sets out on a long-distance swim home accompanied by her dolphin ancestors and fuelled by thoughts of revenge.
Hūria Mātenga battles through raging seas to rescue sailors from a sinking ship.
Pānia of the Moana turns the tables on her husband, refusing to let him control her.
Through Kuini Rikihana’s creative re-telling of these women’s stories, we learn what is possible with a healthy measure of self-belief and the unwavering conviction that we are never acting alone
