Te Kai a Te Rangatira, Leadership from the Māori World


This awe-inspiring collection of interviews offers rare insights from the rich world of Māori leadership. Te Kai a te Rangatira represents the collective effort of over thirty rangatahi who interviewed more than one hundred Māori spanning the length and breadth of Aotearoa. 


The resulting landmark hardcover book honours the words of kaikōrero in both te reo Māori and English, and is accompanied by superb portrait photography. It enriches our understanding of what leadership means, and offers wisdom for the generations to come.

This is a unique book that explores the origins and values of Māori leadership, as well as the life experiences that nurture rangatiratanga across different rohe, iwi and hapū.


The rangatahi behind this kaupapa have worked with Bridget Williams Books to produce this book, and you can learn more about their wider project at the Te Kai a te Rangatira website.
