The Atua Wāhine Collection is a collective of wahine Māori writers and their pieces, versions and stories of Atua Wāhine from Papatūānuku to Hineahuone, all the way down to our grandmothers.

Contributors include Jessica Maclean, Ariana Sutton, Ataria Sharman, Cassie Hart, Ruby Solly, Nicole Titihuia Hawkins, Isla Martin, Ariana Sutton, Miriama Gemmell and Saskia Sassen.

Edited by Ataria Sharman, Cassie Hart, Stacey Teague, Sinead Overbye and Faith Wilson.

Each of the pieces in this collection is fab and one perspective of the whole. I did just want to make mention of the beautifully penned essay by Ataria Sharman (Ngāpuhi, Tapuika) that would be a helpful framework for this collection. Also the words of Ruby Solly (Kai Tahu, Waitaha, Kati Māmoe), who in this and in her debut poetry collection Tōku Pāpā reasserts pre-colonial heterogeneity of Māori and specific narratives and traditions of mana whenua through the odes written in honour of her Southern roots and matriarchs. Beautiful collection in and out! - @ns510reads
