Takerei Norton

Ngai Tahu
Archives Manager
Christchurch
Takerei Norton is the Manager for the Ngāi Tahu Archives. His field of interest is the collation, storage and use of traditional Māori knowledge to protect Māori environmental values. Since 2005 Takerei has managed the Ngāi Tahu Cultural Mapping Project, which focuses on recording Ngāi Tahu histories, traditions, and placenames on the Ngāi Tahu Geographical Information System. To date, Takerei’s main focus has been implementing innovative methods using the latest technologies to research tribal knowledge under the supervision of kaumātua instrumental in the Ngāi Tahu Claim. 
We are privileged to have him present about the development and aspirations of the Ngai Tahu Cultural Atlas a virtual Ngai Tahu search engine as a central depository of the 6000+ placenames and the integration of archives and oral histories.
