Stephen and Gina Donaldson gratefully acknowledge a generous donation from Te Rūnaka o Kāi Tahu towards the cost of establishing this website.
Stephen would like to acknowledge the input of:
Ian Cormack of Waitaha, Kāti Māmoe, and Kāi Tahu who gave advice in relation to the Māori name of this site and other Te Reo aspects.
Stephen would also like to thank Sofia Minson, artist for kindly giving him permission to reproduce the photograph of her painting “Matire Te Horowai”. This features on the cover of the brochure “Instructions to Contributors”.
Although this wahine was not from the shore whaling era, Sofia’s painting of her great grandmother is a beautiful portrait of a North Island (Ngāti Porou) wahine with a Pukauae, who is dressed in European attire. This is suggestive of a Māori woman who crossed the cultural divide.
Gina would like to acknowledge the input of:
Steve Stanbridge for coding help. Steve's site can be viewed here.
The written material contained in this website has been compiled by Stephen John Donaldson as author and therefore represent his personal views.
