Te Tai Whakaea Treaty Settlement Stories launched today

Te Tai Whakaea Treaty Settlement Stories (Te Tai), launched today by the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, will help us connect with our past and share the multi-faceted history of Treaty settlements, says Dr Monty Soutar, Senior Historian, Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage.

Te Tai Whakaea Treaty Settlement Stories (Te Tai), launched today by the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, will help us connect with our past and share the multi-faceted history of Treaty settlements, says Dr Monty Soutar, Senior Historian, Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage.

“Through Te Tai we aim to better inform people about treaty settlements and their impact by connecting and engaging them with a diverse range of Treaty Settlement stories,” Monty Soutar said.

“We began this process today with the first of the iwi stories, those of Ngāti Awa launched at Mataatua Te Mānuka Tūtahi marae in Whakatane.
“While much academic research has been carried out to date there is no overarching history recording these significant milestones in our nation’s history.

“Importantly Te Tai is capturing first-hand the experiences of key figures involved in early Treaty settlements while they are still with us.

“Te Tai presents a package of online resources including audio-visual oral history interviews, research articles, documentaries, multi-media web stories and educational resources in both English and Māori.

“We are working in partnership with iwi and hapū, the Ministry of Justice Tāhū o te Ture, the Ministry of Education Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga, Te Taura Whiri I te Reo Māori the Māori Language Commission and Te Puni Kokiri,” Monty Soutar said.
