A new book is celebrating Māoritanga and the true stories of Māori who have achieved incredible things. The book Kia Kaha, by Stacey Morrison and Jeremy Sherlock, documents 49 Māori people and groups who blazed a trail, and in their way changed the world. It features people like Sir Āpirana Ngata, Patricia Grace, Billy T James, Meri Te Tai Mangakāhia, and many more. It's a beautiful book filled with glorious illustrations by 12 Māori artists and while it's targeted at young people, it will be sure to attract readers of any age. Kathryn speaks with the authors; Stacey Morrison a broadcaster and a champion of Te Reo Māori, and Jeremy Sherlock  a writer, editor, and publisher interested in all things Māoritanga.
