Color Illustrations By Jenny Rendall. New. No Jacket (as issued) Santa Monica, California, U.S.A. : Perceval Press. 2004. F First Edition. H Hard Cover. New. "Many worlds converge in the poetry of Hinemoana Baker, most obviously her parents' Maori and Pakeha ancestries. Matuhi | Needle explores the conflict between the need to belong and the desire to remain an individual. Cultural concepts in the Maori world are given new life through Baker's recovery of "Te Reo" the voice. There are poems of praise, love, and gratitude. Others are inscribed with the surly and the sordid, or admit to feelings of inadequacy and avoidance. Co published with Victoria University Press, Matuhi Needle offers a fresh perspective on native New Zealand cultures. The book includes a CD with seven tracks, six poems, and one song."
