Rachelle Forbes presents her paper to the LIANZA 2014 conference in Auckland on the challenges of curating the Waitangi 2014 exhibition.

Hemi Rukuwai Jury - Workshop: “Mā Wai Rā E Taurima Te Marae I Waho Nei?” “Who Will Tend The Marae?”

The tūrangawaewae of many whānau, hapū and iwi are based around their marae. With the advancement of time, Māori are now asking "who is there to tend the marae?‟ Much Māori historical information is held within information institutions around the world. Whānau, hapū and iwi are going through processes to maintain, sustain and transform marae into repositories for the future. The transformation of these marae into whare taonga provides institutions with the opportunity to gain new and evolving information.

Luqman Hayes - Lightning: Kaupapa Māori In New Zealand Public Libraries

It is nearly two decades since Tui MacDonald first studied the experience of Māori in New Zealand libraries.

Bilingual signage has been erected, awareness and obligations to the Treaty are generally better accepted and understood, and Te Ropu Whakahau has helped to ensure there is a growing professional Māori presence in our libraries. But is that enough?
