Exhibiting Samual Marsdens's Legacy

This exhibition brought to you by The Hocken Collections, Uare Taoka o Hakena, University of Otago, commemorates the bicentenary of Samuel Marsden's first sermon on Christmas Day 1814.

It explores the drama of early encounters between Māori and Missionaries through the letters and journals relating to the first planned European settlement at Hohi in the Bay of Islands.

This first settlement laid the foundations of the relationship between two peoples, Māori and European that continues today, it is the cradle of Christianity and it is where the first books in Te Reo Māori arose.

The materials exhibited include Marsden and his colleagues' first-hand experiences, including accounts of Marsden's relationships with Maori chiefs, the first school roll, a sample of Hongi Hika's cursive alphabet writing and objects excavated from the site of the Hohi Mission Station.
