Abstract:

"Journalist and researcher Herries Beattie worked with Southern Maori for almost fifty years and produced many books. With a strong sense that traditional knowledge needed to be recorded, in 1920 he interviewed people from Foveaux Strait to North Canterbury and from Nelson and Westland, with Otago Museum support. He then transcribed notebooks lent to him by his informants, visited the Museum with them, recording southern names for fauna and artefacts, travelled to traditional sites, and consulted the work of earlier researchers. Finally he worked his findings up into the systematic notes that eventually became MS 181 in the Hocken Library, a highly valued but increasingly fragile treasury of knowledge."--Back cover.
