The Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand,
or Aotearoa. They are of Polynesian stock, and arrived on the islands
before 1300. Their language is therefore related to other Polynesian
tongues, such as Hawaiian.
The Book of
Common Prayer was first translated into Maori in 1830, and has
gone through several translations and a number of different editions
since then. This translation of the 1662 BCP is commonly called Te
Rawiri ("the David"), as the Maori tend
to look for words to be attributed to a person of authority. The
Maori translation of the 1662 BCP is still used in New Zealand, particularly
among older Maori living in rural areas, in spite of a newer Prayer
used here (title page at left) was taken from an edition published
in New Zealand in 1883, and appears in David Griffiths' Bibliography
of the Book of Common Prayer, as 106:11. It contains essentially
everything found in the 1662 BCP. Note that while modern Maori
uses certain diacritical marks (notably the vowel-macron), this
was not the case when this book was printed.
Google Books has this 1883 printing as PDF graphics, along with earlier printings from 1840 (Griffiths 108:4), 1848 (Griffiths 108:8), and 1859(Griffithe 108:9).
Additionally, we have a later 1905 printing (Griffiths 108:12), including a words-only hymnal, available as PDF graphics - see links below. The files include bookmarks and uncorrected extractable text.
on Maori translations of the BCP may be found in The
Book of Common Prayer Among the Nations of the World,
and in an essay in The
Oxford Guide to the Book of Common Prayer.
