Working together for everyone's benefit

Good work being done here.

"National Services Te Paerangi works in collaboration with local iwi, museums, community, and heritage organisations to provide training opportunities that help with the long-term care and preservation of taonga held in the community."

"National Services Te Paerangi has a series of marae-based workshops planned around Aotearoa New Zealand in 2009."

"Participants will learn the basic theory and techniques behind capturing good quality copies with a digital camera, techniques and methods for the care and storage of paper taonga,and how to make appropriate storage containers.
Workshop presenters from Te Papa include photographer Michael Hall and paper conservator Vicki-Anne Heikell (Te Whänau-a-Apanui), who have many years experience between them, and who are looking forward to the opportunity to share their knowledge with the community."

Preserving these photos and other taonga is just so important. I hope TRONT have a similar preservation and protection strategy and program going for Ngai Tahu Taonga. They do, don't they?
