Ngako: The Collections Talk is a documentary film and podcast series that explores
taonga held in our Auckland Council Libraries Heritage Collections.
From printing in Rarotonga and the
whakapapa of a
Māori phrasebook to exploring Auckland’s queer spaces, poetry, streetwear photography and more!
We journey with narrators who illustrate how documentary heritage collections help us understand our past and our present and show us potential paths into our future.
