Documentary heritage really matters

Documentary heritage really matters

The recently opened He Tohu exhibition displays three documents of fundamental importance to New Zealand’s distinctive social development.

The Treaty of Waitangi, The Declaration of Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand, and the 1893 Women’s Suffrage Petition are living documents. Their conservation and display provides a means for all New Zealanders, but especially new generations, to think about where we have come from and where we are going as a nation.

As New Zealand’s principal custodian of our cultural heritage, the Alexander Turnbull Library depends upon on-going donations of documentary materials of cultural heritage value now and in the future.
