Witi Ihimaera - Navigating the Stars: Māori creation myths

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 17 November 2020

A good story never ages, especially in the hands of a master storyteller.

Creation myths that served as a way for Māori to understand themselves and the world around them are as relevant today as they ever were, says beloved writer Witi Ihimaera.

He retells traditional stories for the 21st century in his new book, Navigating the Stars: Māori creation myths.
