Index of Māori Names
This index is from an unpublished manuscript compiled about 1925 by the missionary Rev. Henry James Fletcher (1868-1933). In its original form it was 987 pages long, a vast index of Māori names referred to in books and journals, including the names of boundaries, Māori individuals, canoes, trees, landmarks and geographical locations. It was Fletcher's greatest piece of work, and one that merited improved access.
The New Zealand Collection of the University of Waikato Library holds a microfilm copy of the index which was scanned, converted into a Word file, proofread, edited and converted into webpages.
We are currently trialing a new search mechanism, we hope that it will assist your with your research.

The original index is held in the Alexander Turnbull Library (ATL ref. MS-0782) and has been digitised for incorporation in this reformatted index with their permission.
