This book realises a long held vision to boldly claim our space in psychology: showing how we as Māori practitioners, researchers, and teachers of psychology realise our belief in the potential of psychology to contribute positively to the lives of our whānau. Celebrating our diversity, while at the same time being drawn together by our commonalities, these pages offer a space where all our contributions can be honoured. Our title, originating from Virginia’s chapter, which in turn originated from a well-known whakataukī, expresses the distinctiveness and beauty of manu Māori who herald the dawn, share stories and who listen to the voices of the universe. Like the manu, our reo expresses our whakaaro and our shared beginnings that unite and connect us across the dimensions of wairua, land, sea and air.
