A book to treasure for young and old, internationally renowned artist Robyn Kahukiwa's Ng? Atua: M?ori Gods takes the reader on a beautiful visual journey while imparting simple and effective explanation of the major M?ori gods.
Robyn introduces the pantheon of M?ori gods, and explains the arena in life for which each deity is responsible, for example: 'Tumatauenga is the greatest warrior atua. His powers are extreme strength and courage. He fights for truth and justice.'
This book is a beautiful introduction to some of the unique deities that are part of Aotearoa/New Zealand's cultural story, and affirms their continued relevance today.
