  • The images contained in this publication represent only a small part of taonga photographs that are held in library, museum and private collections through the country. This publication is merely to tip of the iceberg and captures a particular time and place in history. We hope that this publication raises awareness about historical images and their relevance and importance for whanau, hapu and iwi moving forward.


    Our intention  is to inspire others to conduct their own research, collate and share images and information amongst tribal members our tupuna stories and memories are not lost. We also hope that all those photographs that are stored in boxes, under eds, in the roof and wardrobe get to see the light of day again to tell their own stories and that these are preserved and passed onto future generations.
