Te Ara, the online encyclopedia of New Zealand, has become an essential guide to local history since the site was first created in 2005. It is one website we find ourselves often consulting.
When the final theme covered by the Te Ara website, dealing with New Zealand’s creative and intellectual life, was launched in October 2014 it included a section on public history that features a small entry on HistoryWorks.
The photo of the HistoryWorks team that features on Te Ara is also now part of our revamped home page. It was taken at Rukumoana Marae, near Morrinsville, when the Ngāti Hauā deed of settlement was signed in July 2013.
