Information and Knowledge

Ensuring continuity for our past and our future

Information & Knowledge maintains and supports all the information technology (IT), data management and archival management requirements for the Ngāti Awa Group including Ngāti Awa Research and Archives.

The Information and Knowledge department is the knowledge resources team of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Awa.  The team has been established to achieve our responsibility of caring and sharing of our collective matauranga.

Here you will find information about key projects, useful resources and information, wananga, alerts and information regarding this department.

Ngati Awa Research and Archives

Ngāti Awa Research and Archives Trust was created from the need to preserve, store and utilise the numerous research and historical documents which had been compiled to support the Ngāti Awa Raupatu research. This Tāonga is now open for uri and students to come and explore.
