Riassunto: Our elder grandmothers instructed the teachers of the families to: hide our nation, hide our information, hide our belief systems in the wananga of silence, to wait the time of Tumatawera... The teachers kept everything hidden in the mokopuna. The grandchild became the nation s library and all information was concealed inside the minds of the mokouna.

So the grandmothers whispered into the one hundred and many years since the stranger came. Grandmother Ivy Elizabeth McAnergney, nee Baird, of the family of Ngati Rakai and Ngati Pakau in the summer of 1999 stated quietly to those gathered around her.

Whispers of Waitaha: Traditions of a Nation tells simply of the oral transfer of information from
