Local historians weekly "Back Issues" article in the Manawatū Standard. Local History Week and History Month this year is inspired by the whakatuakī (proverb) "Whatungarongaro te tangata toitū te whenua".
Fifty local history organisations and enthusiasts responded to the City Library's Heritage team invitation to contribute to a rich programe of historic whenua (land) related events and activities. More than 80 activities will be held during March. This article outlines a programme that highlights the history of the Manawatū and Palmerston North. Talks, tours and workshops are mostly free to attend. The popular programme, co-ordinated by the Palmerston North City Library, has been held annually since 2008.
