Te Tai Hāuauru: Preserving History

Te Puni Kōkiri and National Services Te Paerangi hosted a two-day digital photography and paper conservation workshop in Hawera for south Taranaki Māori. Participants were taught how to make the best use of their own digital cameras and to record images of tupuna and whānau. The next day, Vicki-Anne Heikel showed how to care for precious paper documents like Bibles, whakapapa, manuscripts, journals and diaries. A highlight of the workshop for some of the participants was making a storage box from acid-free cardboard for their own documents.
