Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document describes the social organization and economy
of an isolated Maori village in northern New Zealand which is part of the Ngatikahu tribe
or sub-tribe. The author's main interest is in the changes that have occurred and in the
problems of assimilation into the European-New Zealand culture. He discusses the breakdown
of larger social units (e.g., the whanau) and the increasing emphasis on the individual
family unit which has coincided with the introduction of dairying. Also discussed are the
changes in gardening and fishing techniques and organization. Examples from individual case
histories are quoted throughout.
