Welcome to our newsletter

Kia ora, in this pānui (newsletter) we have some videos that share kupu (words) that describe our work in te reo Māori – made for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. We follow the impressive story of a desert trooper in the Second World War, and take a look through the Archive for material about Taranaki and trains.

A wavy archival journey

Following a World War Two skirmish, New Zealand desert trooper Ronald ‘Skin’ Moore trekked a remarkable 200 miles through the Libyan desert. Find out how a picture of an audio disc that held Skin’s retelling of this story sent one of our staff on a journey of their own. 

Nō muri i tētahi whawhai i te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao, ka hīkoi haere a Ronald ‘Skin’ Moore, he turupa koroha o Aotearoa, ki te koroha o Rīpia, e 200 māero te tawhiti.  Tirohia te pēwhea a te haere a tētahi o ā mātou kaimahi i te kitenga i te whakaahua o te kōpae oro e kapohia nā ngā kōrero mō te haerenga a Skin.

PATU! screenings in the Film Festival

The newly-preserved PATU!, the definitive protest documentary of the 1981 Springbok Tour, will be screening at the New Zealand International Film Festival in October and November. This will be a rare chance to see the full documentary on the big screen, with showings around the country. Ngā Taonga spent nearly five years digitally preserving this film.
