Te Kooti's Slow-Cooking Earth Oven Prophecy: A Patuheuheu account and a new transformative leadership theory
The French philosopher Michel Foucault stated: “I don't write a book so that it will be the final word; I write a book so that other books are possible, not necessarily written by me” (cited in O’Farrell, 2005, p. 9). In the same vein, I offer this book, not as a final word, but as a stepping stone for others.
He ihu hūpē ahau1 - I am inexperienced in the ways of this world, and therefore I can write only from my particular Patuheuheu perspective and positioning within this book. This work is the culmination of my interest in the past, present and future of Patuheuheu. It is based on my interpretations, which are ultimately shaped by the whakapapa2 and life experiences that form the cultural lenses and filters that determine the way in which the research for this book was conducted.
