Kia Kaha: A Storybook of Māori Who Changed the World
This book will be an integral part of any library collection.
These stories are about people who many of us won’t have heard of but whose contribution to their areas of expertise have changed the world; from sports stars, artists, activists and politicians. These people and groups are names that all New Zealanders should be familiar with. They have all achieved memorable things and changed the world in their own way.
The book encourages readers to look at their own whanau, to learn their stories and special gifts and how we all have the potential to make a difference.
