Tribal is proud to announce the launch of the new Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga website, designed to provide an innovative experience for visitors seeking information on Aotearoa New Zealand's cultural heritage.
The new website features a user-friendly design, allowing information to be accessed more easily - both functionally and lingually.
A key focus for the website was elevating Māori heritage, and in its development Tribal spoke directly to Kāhui Māori - incorporating workshops, data analysis, surveys, and interviews into the process.
In the new website, Kāhui Māori design is integrated throughout, with the home page centred around a pou, inspiring the feeling of a whare and village. Elements that represent whakairo (carving) & Kāhui Māori painting arts have been incorporated by artist and Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Kaihautū Dean Whiting who was instrumental in developing the aesthetic of the website.
Hadyn Kerr, executive creative director at Tribal says it has been a privilege to launch a website that connects people and promotes a cultural understanding of Aotearoa.
“With an important focus of meeting the needs of iwi and hapū, we ensured they were central to the experience. The process has championed a sense of hapori (community) throughout and has especially elevated the use of te reo Māori,” says Hadyn.
With simplified navigation visitors can interact seamlessly with the website and its intuitive storytelling, which works to inspire exploration across Aotearoa. The refresh provides a much better experience of the New Zealand Heritage List/Rārangi Kōrero, simplifies all application processes for users and also includes a glossary of te reo Māori terms, making it easier for all visitors to understand and appreciate te reo Māori.
Roxane Gajadhar, director organisational development at Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga is thrilled that the new platform will help provide detailed information and inspire visitors to learn more about our cultural heritage.
"We are committed to preserving and promoting Aotearoa New Zealand's rich cultural heritage, and a refreshed website is such an important tool in helping elevate and ensure accessibility to our resources," says Roxane.
