Te Aka a Tāwhaki

Te Aka a Tāwhaki is a collection of Māori materials located on the ground floor of the Central Library.

This small collection houses core Māori resources that are required readings for many courses across the University.

These items must be used in the Library; you can search for duplicate borrowable copies held in other libraries on campus via Library Search | Ketu.

             Te Aka carving

The collection was established in collaboration with Te Tumu and acknowledges the holistic dimension of Mātauranga Māori by bringing together in one space a collection of core Māori resources across a range of disciplines.
