OUR STORIES

In 2018 Mercury 250 Trust commissioned the writing of a number of stories of 18th century Te Whanganui o Hei and Aotearoa; an updated or slightly revised version of  “previous more ‘Eurocentric’ histories with their corresponding   European perspective.” (Richard Gates, John Steele, Mercury Bay historians).  Some of the information, presented in the book for the first time, is from Ngati Hei oral tradition and history.  Their contribution   is acknowledged with gratitude.   

Copies of the book will be available for purchase for a modest fee around May 2019.  In the meantime, here is a taster of those stories.  A synopsis of each will be added to the website very soon.
