Name of Book: Huia Short Stories 8: Contemporary Maori Edition
Authors: Whai Conroy, Pripi Evans, Ann and Wendy French (some of them)
Type: Short Story
This is a series of 32 different short stories and various novel extracts by 24 different storytellers that had made the stories. These certain stories are from the Pikihuia Awards for Maori Writers back in 2009. This 8th rendition brings together a lot of English writing and Maori writing that is all NZ made and is very reliable. Most stories range from many different categories, mainly adventure stories.
This collection of short stories was very interesting to read. Most of the Maori stories were very odd to read, but the English ones as a whole were very interesting, albeit sometimes offensive. It really though, has that very nice and intriguing NZ vibe that really as a whole is why these stories are very unique and well presented. It really shows how so many different stories can be presented so beautifully. If I had to be in any of these stories, I’d be in quite a number of them, so much to not even named, since they can convey my life no matter which one is the choice.
