Whakanuia Te Wiki o te Reo Māori!

Celebrate Māori language week by accessing some of the Māori dictionaries and texts in the NZETC collection

Also included in the collection are various significant English language texts by Sir Apirana Ngata, Sir Maui Pomare,Reweti Tuhorouta Kohere,Te Rangi Hiroa,Makereti Papakura,Hori Ngatai and Wiremu Tamihana Tarapipipi Te Waharoa. The collection also contains several historical ethnologies, war histories – including Cody’s “28th Maori Battalion” – and modern fiction.

We are keen to increase the amount of Māori language material, as well as the number of historical texts written by Māori, whether in Te Reo or in English, in the collection. More texts will be added later this year. If you have suggestions for texts which should be considered for digitisation please email
