Coming up in HeritageTalks:

June: Māori Maps with Peter Dowling
Wednesday 28 June, 12pm -1pm

Māori Maps is a portal to the 750-plus ancestral marae of Aotearoa New Zealand. Relaunched in January this year in a mobile-friendly format, the site provides key information, maps and photos for each marae - going as far as the gateway to help descendants to reconnect and visitors to engage respectfully with marae communities.

July: Māori place names - Point Erin to Wynyard Quarter with Herewini Easton
Wednesday 12 July, 12pm -1pm

E tu ake ana ahau ki Okā
Ka tiro atu ki Te Waikōkota
Ka rongo ahau ki ngā wai e tere nei
Ko Tīkapa Moana, ko Hauraki ko Waitemata
Ko Ūreia he tipua he taniwha
As I stand at Okā I look out across Te Waikōkota
I sense the waters flowing, Tīkapa Moana, Hauraki, Waitemata
Here is Ūreia the mythical sea creature

Join Herewini Easton on a pictorial journey of the ancient shoreline of Auckland’s waterfront, from Point Erin to Brickfield Bay.

Engagement with Māori taonga with Rob Eruera.
Wednesday 26 July, 12pm -1pm

The charismatic Karanga of taonga Māori over the years has left my mind and heart filled with emotional wonder at how powerful such treasures truly are. Most important to this equation, however, is how people engage and join with the taonga. Please join me in this low-key chat. Nau mai - Haere mai - Rob Eurera.
