CORRECTIONS: In Issue 55 there were a number of mistakes in the Maori text, for which we apologise.

The photo caption on page 28 should finish ‘at Waitangi’ and the second girl in the picture on page 30 is Miss M. Robinson, not Miss Ihaka.

In the fifth line of the third stanza of Wahine-iti's Death Chant, on page 21, ‘flea-infested’ should read ‘lice-infested’.

In the article on page 5, it was incorrectly stated that Nukutaimemeha had been given back to the people of Carterton by the Wellington Diocesan Board of Trustees. In fact, it has been given to the Board by Mrs [ unclear: ] okiri, to be used by the Church and the people of Carterton.

COVER: One of the kuias at Turangawaewae during the tangi for King Koroki.

BACK COVER: This rafter pattern at Te Whatu Manawa O Rehua meeting house in Christchurch is a most unusual one.

Taken from an engraving on a rock at Shepherd's Creek, on the upper side of the Waitaki Gorge, it is a stylised kiwi, possibly represented as being inside the egg. It is considered that the engraving would have been done by Maoris waiting to go down stream after rounding up birds in the McKenzie country, possibly while the river was in flood.
