Manu Māori: Bird Legends and Customs, by Murdoch Riley, is a book that describes the status of birds in the Māori world. It details their connection with the gods, how birds were caught in traditional times, snaring and preserving birds for winter consumption and more.  Their importance is emphasised by the various stories and rituals that engaged a pantheon of gods of the highest rank who dwelt at Hawaiki, the spiritual homeland.

Manu Māori also comes with an accompanying CD “Forest and Ocean Bird Songs“ composed and sung in te reo by Hirini Melbourne.
