Treaty Settlement stories preserved

From Nine To Noon, 11:30 am on 9 August 2016

New Zealanders who've been involved in negotiating treaty settlements, or whose lives have been affected by them, are sharing their stories for a national research project. The Ministry for Culture and Heritage is gathering material from as many Maori and pakeha as possible, to the full story of the various Treaty settlements. Te Taiwhakaea: Treaty Settlement Stories will produce a comprehensive account that the Ministry hopes will help New Zealanders understand the settlement process. Interviews are being recorded and stories are coming in since the Ministry launched the project earlier in the year. Leading it is the Ministry's Senior Maori Historian Dr Monty Soutar. <http://www.mch.govt.nz/treatystories>
