Te Reo Māori Map of Aotearoa/New Zealand

Mar 2018

A map print showing the Te Reo Maori names of towns and cities across Aotearoa/New Zealand. A fantastic resource for learning more about New Zealand places from a uniquely Te Reo perspective.

Covering the Aotearoa/New Zealand mainland and Wharekauri/Chatham Islands, this A1 sized wall map is a great resource for learning about our places and Māori heritage. The meanings of commonly used Māori words that make place names are also detailed.

To read more about how the map was created in more detail, read the blog post about it. If you have local knowledge of the Māori place names in your area and would like to suggest a correction to the map, feel free to get in touch.

Sources that were used during the research of this map included:

I’ve also created an interactive version of this map with much greater detail, including the names of natural features (such as mountain peaks and rivers) and many more place names.
