Te Tai o Poutini
West Coasters sharing our stories
This Kete has been created to capture and preserve the historical and current memories,
stories and activities of the West Coast people.
Groups and individuals are invited to add their stories, documents, digital images, videos and audios to this kete. Help us create a vibrant and interesting site that truly captures the spirit of our place - Te Tai Poutini: the West Coast of the South Island.
If you need help the staff at the public libraries in Hokitika, Greymouth and Westport will be pleased to assist. Also, for your use, these libraries have computers, scanners (to copy those old documents and photos), and access to other recording devices for projects.
If you would like to attend a training workshop in using or developing the site please register your interest with
This site will develop and grow with the efforts of those on and off the coast who have archives, ideas and stories to share.
