              Nga Aro-Takaro: 100 Maori Games Artefacts
                

              Nga Aro-Takaro: 100 Maori Games Artefacts (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Aro-takaro are the 'face' of traditional Maori games. They are the iconic implements associated with indigenous games practices, rituals and protocols. A testament to their prolific ancient uses are the numerous games artefacts, vividly etched in millennia-old cave paintings, all... over Aotearoa/NZ. Aro-takaro were spiritually conceived from the environment by villagers and perfected as social and educational tools by tohunga, the intellectual giants of the day, known as Hohou-Rongo - revered games artisans and peace-makers. The Hohou-Rongo utilised aro-takaro as mechanisms for peace, enjoyment, social bonding and in education to make their tribespeople resilient and adaptive. Each of the 100 aro-takaro within this volume is illustrated, has a description of the materials it is made from and activities that it is synonymous with. The reader will immediately be able to visit their sacred forests, and with due reverence, identify resources with which to make aro-takaro. These artefacts are as diverse as parahirahi (games sandals) & pikipotae (peace headdresses), equipment for hakura & matamatarongo protocols ( peace dances) and ki (balls), pona (knots) and perepere (games pieces). Here then is a cultural resource which can link educationalists with some of the aro-takaro technologies, conservation practices and beliefs of our forebears.
