Te Kawa a Māui Atlas
Staff and students at Te Kawa a Māui, Victoria University of Wellington, are building a digital map-based database of student work.
In 2010, Māori Studies students explored visual and Google Earth representations of their discipline through various assignments in MAOR 111, MAOR 112, MAOR 122, MAOR 123, MAOR 316 and MAOR 317. Most of the maps have been created collaboratively, and thus constitute a class-wide effort.
The Te Kawa a Māui Atlas includes geo-biographies of key historical figures in Māoridom, an interactive map of pā sites in Wellington and a time-map of protest occupations, amongst others.
This work has been supported by Victoria University of Wellington's Teaching and Learning Fund 2010, and by the Summer Scholars scheme 2009 and 2010.
This site is currently under construction, but will be updated soon with student work from mapping assignments. Course links to the right will go 'live' as assignments are added throughout 2011.
