    Ngai Tahu's digital atlas of the original Maori names for the South Island can now be used to teach intermediate and early secondary school students about colonisation

    Ngai Tahu's digital atlas of the original Maori names for the South Island can now be used to teach intermediate and early secondary school students about colonisation


    The digital atlas Ka Huru Manu was launched at the end of 2017, and features more than 1000 Maori names and the stories behind them.

    Now the South Island iwi have designed a guide for teachers to use the map in their classrooms.

    Workshops are planned throughout Te Waipounamu.
