Proverbs (or whakatauki) express the wisdom, wit and common sense pf the Maori people. Evocative and succinct, they are great value and inspiration to writers, story-tellers and anyone speaking in a Maori setting. Several hundred proverbs are here categorised under a large number of diverse headings, with translations and explanations in English. This book provides both a useful reference and an insight into Maori humour and values.
