- This comprehensive study of the small Northland Māori community of Waima originated out of Hohepa’s M.A. thesis. Hohepa provides a detailed description of the geography and historical developments of the region in the following time frames: pre-European period, 1815-40, 1840-80, 1880-1910, and 1910-1958. He examines the social and economic basis of households in Waima and discusses the concentration on dairy farming in the region, the consolidation of the land, and the causes of economic hardship in the area. His chapter on kinship relationships in the community and the role of the whaamere draws on a number of actual incidents he witnessed or heard about in the community. He makes an assessment of Māori language skills of the school children. In the last chapter he describes the various marae in the district, and provides detailed accounts of preparing for a hui and a tangi. He also discusses customs surrounding weddings, laws of tapu, grave-digging and conflicts in the region.

- Hohepa explores issues surrounding the "one-people" myth which he states had its origins in the possibly apocryphal sentiments of William Hobson at the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi: "He iwi kotahi tatou/Now we are one people". In studying aspects of this concept of being "one people", Hohepa questions issues of equality and contends that equality for Māori would mean consultation with Māori leaders on all areas that affect Māori. It would also entail the "recognition of Māori identity and for equal recognition of cultural aspects, attitudes and institutions that are different."

- Co-authors Pat Hohepa and Atareta Poananga. Hohepa and Poananga write a discourse on the issues and implications raised through the Hikoi ki Waitangi of Jan-Feb 1984. They provide a history of the Kotahitanga movement and write of the significance of the formal welcome to the Kotahitanga at Turangawaewae, home of the Kingitanga. They also review the subsequent hikoi, in uniting "in a common kaupapa (objective) the various confederation, tribal, political and generational groupings in Māori society", as well as the different political parties, pan-Māori groups, religious leaders and many Pakeha groups. They add that "[t]he common objectives were to stop the treaty celebrations and to give Māori people time to discuss what should be done with the treaty"; however, two different groups emerged with differing solutions. First, there were the "integrationists" who look to "accommodation of Māori interests within the setting, laws and boundaries of a Pakeha-dominated society". Second, there were the "autonomists" who "could not live with compromise, accommodation or adaptation to fit into a white world.... [with] the change to a more assertive pro-Māori stance of independence, autonomy and sovereignty."
