Exhibition at the Akaroa Museum

Brief Description

No Voice, No Choice - Opening Friday 12 October, a new exhibition at Akaroa Museum looking at the lives of Banks Peninsula women, before and after gaining the vote in 1893. 
Following a programme of earthquake strengthening and repair, Akaroa Museum has created three new long term exhibitions about the history of Bank Peninsula: Ngā Taenga mai  Arrivals, Land & Sea, and Tales of Banks Peninsula. These have been produced in collaboration with Ōnuku rūnanga and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu. 

Details and Contact

Ngā Taenga mai -Arrivals focuses on a 30 year period of Banks Peninsula history when the region underwent intense change. From the 1830s to the 1850s, a 700-800 year continuum of Ngāi Tahu occupation was broken by new arrivals. The simultaneous histories of whaling, the failed French colony, naval occupation, the arrival of Pākeha settlers and the struggle by Ngāi Tahu to get a fair deal for their land are explored in the new exhibition. 

Land & Sea is about the human relationship with the natural environment, and how settlers from both Polynesian and European origins made their living from the land and sea around Horomaka Banks Peninsula.

Tales of Banks Peninsula has local identity as its theme. Meet some of the heroes (and villains) that punctuate our history - Frank Worsley, Bully Hayes, Captain Bruce, Jessie Buckland and Pompey the Penguin.
