Arachne. No. 3

Supplement to 'Toa Takitini'

Supplement to 'Toa Takitini'

This Collection of Maori Songs first appeared in the supplement to issues of Toa Takitini of September, 1924 (3) Waiatas), October, 1924 (13), November, 1924 (8), December, 1924 (11) and January, 1925 (5), making 40 waiatas in all. Those were all the waiatas I could collect and annotate for other things occupied my time and I had to lay the task aside. Last winter I took it up again at the request of that venerable gentleman, Archdeacon Herbert Williams. I continued collecting and annotating waiatas and publishing them in the supplement of Toa Takitini. Ninety in all were thus collected and are reprinted here.
