Kōrero: Early mapping

The South Island and Stewart Island (2 o 3)

This map was drawn by a group of Māori around 1841, for Edmund Storr Halswell, who was working as a New Zealand Company official in the South Island. Unfortunately Halswell did not name the people who drew it, so it is hard to tell whose knowledge this map records. It is mostly a coastal chart, showing and naming harbours and headlands. Stewart Island is at bottom right.
