He Tohu resources brought to Tāmaki
Auckland may not be able to host an original of the Treaty of Waitangi any time soon, but it will be able to share some of the material created for the award-winning He Tohu exhibition at the National Library in Wellington.
The library's Auckland branch today opened He Tohu Tāmaki to provide educators with greater knowledge of the three constitutional documents of the exhibition:
– the 1835 He Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nu Tireni – Declaration of Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand
– the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi
– and the 1893 Women’s Suffrage Petition.
Internal Affairs deputy chief executive Peter Murray says it includes a Virtual Reality exploration of the Wellington He Tohu exhibition document room, video content, static images, books, and inquiry-based approaches all designed to support educators and give learners multiple experiences.
It's not open to the public at this stage.
