This six-volume compilation of Maori oral literature, published 1887-90, was commissioned in 1879 by the New Zealand government to help preserve indigenous traditions. The ethnographer John White (1826-91) collected Maori texts and provided accompanying English translations of myths about deities, creation, migrations and warfare, together with ritual genealogies.
