A digital Māori atlas named Kā Huru Manu has been developed by Ngāi Tahu.
The new atlas uses the original Māori names for the South Island. It can be used to teach school students about the Maori language and the affects of colonisation.
Kā Huru Manu was launched at the end of 2017 and features more than 1000 Māori names and the stories behind them.
There is even a guide for teachers to use the map in their classrooms.
Ngāi Tahu archive manager Takerei Norton said the iwi was excited about presenting the framework and working with teachers to see how the resource could be used.
The framework could be used to teach Year 7 to 10 students about places and as a reference when studying social action.
