520    During the nineteenth century, Maori women produced 
       letters and memoirs, wrote off to newspapers and 
       commissioners, appeared before commissions of enquiry, 
       gave evidence in court cases, and went to the Native Land 
       Court to assert their rights. He Reo Wahine is a bold new 
       introduction to the experience of Maori women in colonial 
       New Zealand through Maori women's own words - the speeches
       and evidence, letters and testimonies that they left in 
       the archive. Drawing from over 500 texts in both English 
       and te reo Maori written by Maori women themselves, or 
       expressing their words in the first person, He Reo Wahine 
       explores the range and diversity of Maori women's concerns
       and interests, the many ways in which they engaged with 
       colonial institutions, as well as their understanding and 
       use of the law, legal documents, and the court system. The
       book both collects those sources - providing readers with 
       substantial excerpts from letters, petitions, submissions 
       and other documents - and interprets them. Eight chapters 
       group texts across key themes: land sales, war, land 
       confiscation and compensation, politics, petitions, legal 
       encounters, religion and other private matters. Beside a 
       large scholarship on New Zealand women's history, the 
       historical literature on Maori women is remarkably thin. 
       This book changes that by utilising the colonial archives 
       to explore the feelings, thoughts and experiences of Maori
       women - and their relationships to the wider world.
