Mormon and Maori examines the appeal of Mormonism for the Maori of New Zealand from its first introduction to them in the 1880s and the reasons for its continuing success. It discusses the impact of an American religion on its Maori converts and their culture over the last 130 years and surveys the attempts of American leaders and missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to find a consistent policy reconciling Mormonism and Maoritanga.
