Auckland Libraries: Ngako: The Collections Talk

Ngako: The Collections Talk

A black and white photo of a photographer in the mid-ground setting up a tripod at the mouth of a cave. The background is somewhat rocky with the ocean behind.

Ngako: The Collections Talk is a documentary film series that explores taonga held in our Auckland Libraries Heritage Collections and Auckland Council Archives.

We journey with narrators who illustrate how documentary heritage collections help us understand our past, our present and show us potential paths into our future.
