Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga Archives New Zealand is the official guardian of New Zealand’s public archives – the memory of government . We gather, store and protect a wide range of material that documents the relationship between Māori and the Crown. As a Tiriti partner, we recognise the connections whānau, hapū and iwi have to the taonga tuku iho in our care. We support whānau, hapū and iwi to access these holdings in various ways, from formal agreements and shared projects to tours and research advice.
