Kapohia ngā Taonga – Preserve Ngāti Mutunga o Wharekauri History

Te Reo o Taranaki, in partnership with the Ngāti Mutunga o Wharekauri Iwi Trust, is offering whānau of Ngāti Mutunga o Wharekauri the chance to gain a Certificate of Proficiency in Oral History and Archiving. 

This new programme teaches skills for recording elders and whānau, and protecting our korero tuku iho for future generations. It introduces archiving principles and practices from a Kaupapa Māori perspective. 

The course covers oral history interviewing, recording techniques, digital preservation, collection management and ownership – and how to bring these strands together. 

It offers practical guidance in safeguarding iwi and whānau collections, and using archiving to grow Ngāti Mutunga o Wharekauri Iwi capacity in the area of language and culture revitalisation. 

The course focuses on indigenous archiving principles and preservation techniques. Learning is via a four day wānanga from 16-19 December. The course will be delivered on the island by Te Reo o Taranaki archiving team. A significant part of this kaupapa involves developing iwi preservation projects. 

By the end of the course, you will have completed a recorded oral history interview and hands-on archiving practice. You will also have practical skills that will enable you to support the archiving of Ngāti Mutunga o Wharekauri taonga that arise from Kaumātua / whanau korero and treaty claims.
