‘Kōtare’ is the Māori name for a kingfisher, a bird whose gift for ruminative stillness precedes its quick diving to the depths. It was chosen as the name for this journal to reflect the kind of scholarship it hopes both to promote and to draw on: the keen-eyed noting of changes, large or small, in our cultural currents; the retrieval of what we thought was lost, or was long concealed; and our hopes for a more than occasional flash of interest for our readers. Ahakoa he iti, he pounamu. Although it is small, it is greenstone.
