Maori as a University Subject

Maori as a University Subject

The Board of Maori Ethnological Research made representations to the N.Z. University Senate that Maori should be a subject for the Degree of Bachelor of Arts like French, Italian and Spanish.

The question was asked : 'Where are the Maori texts for the students to read and study?' Williams replied: 'Here they are: Nga Mahi a Nga Tupuna—The Works of the Ancestors, written by Sir George Grey. This work could be revised, and Nga Moteatea—The Poems, also collected by Sir George Grey. Nga Mahi a Nga Tipuna, as revised by Archdeacon Williams, has been published by the Board of Ethnological Research. Nga Moteatea—The Poems, has been assigned to me by that old gentleman for revision.
