A range of community initiatives devise and deliver content in exhibitions, talks and performances engaging the community to reflect and share stories from their past and present. This has enabled the community to comment on how our past effects today and the futures of our future generations. Marc Cooper, Head Teacher of The Marvell College, sums up: “The History Troupe’s emphasis on roots, heritage and futures echoes what the Maoris call Whānau', It is through the whānau that values, histories and traditions from the ancestors are adapted for the contemporary world”.
