The National Oral History Association of New Zealand Te Kete Korero-a-Waha o Te Motu (NOHANZ) provides opportunities for community, professional, and academic oral historians to meet each other and keep up with new developments by organising:

  • national conferences every two years
  • regional seminars
  • occasional workshops and presentations
  • an annual series of talks.

NOHANZ publishes a regular newsletter, an annual journal Oral history in New Zealand, and occasional publications such as Maori and oral history: a collection, edited by Rachael Selby and Alison Laurie, 2005.

The Alexander Turnbull Library Oral History Centre works closely with NOHANZ and supports the use of NOHANZ’s Code of ethical and technical practice.

Further information about NOHANZ, including contact and membership details, newsletters, and a noticeboard is available on the NOHANZ website.
