Meeting Houses of Ngati Porou O Te Tai Rawhiti: an Illustrated Guide
Meeting Houses of Ngati Porou O Te Tai Rawhiti: an Illustrated Guide by D. Simmons
This lavishly illustrated history of the Te Tai Rawhiti area is the most complete and detailed record of former and existing meeting-houses of Ngati Porou, which covers the region from the north of Gisborne to the East Cape. It is the result of over 30 years research by scholar David Simmons and goes beyond existing studies of ceremonial house exteriors to investigate those with little, if any, decorative features as well as those with completely carved interiors.
