 Zealand History Award grant to prepare a new bilingual edition of Tamihana Te Rauparaha’s biography of Te Rauparaha.

The pukapuka one of the only full-length biographies written in te reo Maori in the nineteenth century.

Neill Atkinson, the chief historian for Manatu Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage, says the awards support projects an independent panel believe will make a significant contribution to the study of New Zealand history and society.

Ten awards were given this year, with grants ranging from $12,000 to just over $4000.

Historian Vincent O’Malley received a $12,000 to work on a book about The New Zealand wars.

Among the other winners are Christchurch writer Rebecca Macfie, who is writing a biography of the late unionist Helen Kelly, Nick Bollinger, who is researching a history of New Zealand’s counterculture between 1960 and 1975, and Victoria Froude from the Bay of Islands, who is working on a history of New Zealand’s marine environments from pre-human times to today.
