Summary "Ngoingoi Pewhairangi was an inspirational leader and tireless worker who received a QSM for her work in the Maori community." "Ngoi's passion for te reo Maori saw her develop, with Katerina Mataira the Te Ataarangi method of teaching te reo Maori. She was a prolific and celebrated composer of waiata, most famous for the songs 'E Ipo' and 'Poi E', which both reached number one on the New Zealand Top Ten. She also established the National Weavers' Association, led a highly successful kapa haka group and judged kapa haka in New Zealand and Australia. She worked with underprivileged people and wrote on a range of social issues." "This bilingual text is a celebration of Ngoi's life through the testimonies of many people who knew her."--BOOK JACKET.
