The aim of this thesis is to position Samoan tatau as a travelling practice through an investigation of tatau practice both in relation to its origins, significance and practice in Samoa as well as within the Samoan diaspora, with specific reference to the Samoan communities of New Zealand. It is demonstrated that tatau as inherently intertwined with travel, movement and change, is not a new conception. Rather, it is one that stems back to the earliest known origins of tatau. The notions of tatau coming from beyond Samoa, the movement of people, and the interconnectedness of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, are united in historical records the extensive and complex oral histories surrounding the origins of tatau. As the art form has moved through the years, it has progressed along this trajectory of travel and change spread across the globe by widely dispersed Samoan communities. This thesis examines contemporary Samoan tatau as practiced and worn in the Samoan diaspora. As Samoan communities adapt and change in relation to new cultural contexts lived in, so too does tatau. However, new innovations in tatau cannot be talked about in isolation from customary forms; they are part of a cultural continuum embedded in a history of travel and change. For this reason the thesis examines both tatau completed with the ‘au (customary hand tool) and the masigi (tattoo machine). Integral to this thesis is the investigation of Samoan tatau through the lens of those who practice it and those who wear it. Oral testimony is a significant component of the research given the long standing oral histories associated with this measina (treasured art form). Personal narratives garnered from the oral testimony of reputable tufuga tatatau, tatau artists, tatau recipients and gallery based artists allow for a comparative study of aspects of tatau as they relate to concepts of travel and change. With the practice of Samoan tatau set only to increase this thesis hopes to make a timely contribution to research and discussion on Pacific art forms.

Mark Adams' renowned images document a great Polynesian art tradition. Samoan tattooing has flourished among Samoan migrants in New Zealand, stimulated major New Zealand artists, and inspired tattoo artists and communities worldwide. Through Adams' photography, Tatau tells the story of Sulu'ape Paulo II, the pre-eminent figure of modern Samoan tattooing. Paulo was a brilliantly innovative and often controversial man, who saw tatau as an art of international importance, and who was killed tragically in 1999. Tatau documents his practice, and that of other tufuga ta tatau (tattoo artists), in the contexts of Polynesian tattooing, Samoan migrant communities and New Zealand art. Tatau presents 100 full-colour plates of Adams' powerful and moving images. Documentary by nature, they also ask tough questions of this scene and its history. Accompanying the photographs are two essays and two interviews: Sean Mallon writes on the tufuga, Peter Brunt writes on the photographer, and in interviews with Sean Mallon and Nicholas Thomas, Sulu'ape Paulo II and Mark Adams respectively articulate their own understandings of their practices.

This account of an ethnomusicologist’s experience conducting fieldwork offers a glimpse into the life of New Zealand’s Maori people through his documentation of traditional songs. The audio recordings included span 1958 through 1979, a time when many of the culture’s traditions were fading. Sensitive writing and attention to the challenges of anthropological fieldwork shed light on postcolonialism in New Zealand and its effects on Maori and Polynesian cultures and the continuance of traditional music.

In a time of dynamism and contradiction in Pacific cultural production, a time of 'turning things over' and 'writing from the inside out, ' this far-reaching volume provides a comprehensive set of essays and interviews on the emergent literatures of the New Pacific. With its dynamic combination of important position papers, polemics, and decolonizing critiques by noted authors and of analysis by new and established post-colonial scholars, this volume exposes 'the maze and mix of literatures and cultural identities breaking down and building up across the Pacific Ocean.' This pioneering work will be the definitive resource for anyone researching or teaching Pacific literature and will be invaluable for bringing Pacific culture to readers outside the region

The book is a comprehensive compilation of all aspects of the geology of Northwest Borneo (Sarawak, Brunei and Sabah) and the contiguous South China and Sulu Seas. The sedimentary formations are described, their palaeontology tabulated and ages discussed. Stratigraphic charts illustrate their relationships across the whole region. Detailed geological maps of selected areas are accompanied by cross sections based on outcrop patterns and drilling and seismic data offshore. Palaeocurrent maps are presented and the palaeogeography for different ages described and sedimentary provenance discussed. Descriptions of the ophiolite sequences, volcanic and plutonic rocks are accompanied by tables of selected chemical analyses and geochemical plots and their tectonic significance discussed. All radiometric data are tabulated and discussed. Regional structures and the predominantly Tertiary tectonics are described. In Sarawak the mountains are constructed of Upper Cretaceous to Lower Eocene greenschist facies shaly turbiditic Rajang Group, uplifted before the end of the Eocene. In Sabah the Western Cordillera is constructed of Eocene to Lower Miocene sandy turbidite uplifted in the Late Miocene and Pliocene. Miocene intrusion of Mount Kinabalu and uplift of the Cordillera is related to collision at the Northwest Borneo Trough. Gold, antimony, mercury and copper deposits are described and the tectonic setting of oil and gas deposits discussed. * Correlation tables, descriptions and ages of all major sedimentary formations of Sarawak, Brunei and Sabah * Petrology, geochemistry and ages of all volcanic and plutonic formations of North West Borneo and their tectonic significance * Economic geology including the geological setting of offshore oil and gas deposits
