Recent Changes - Āperira/Paengawhāwhā/April 2017

Some new form and genre terms have been created. These include: Pukapuka mapi (Atlases) and Rauemi matua (Primary sources). We now also have a term for Researchers (Kairangahau).

The terms relating to relationships have been revised and clarified. Tūhono is now a separate term that describes any form of relationship or connection, and Mārenatanga (Marriage) has been redefined as a narrower term of Tūhono.

A term has been added for resilience, Manawaroa.

New terms relating to repatriation and the return of cultural and physical remains have been created. These include Whakahoki, a general term for repatriation, Whakahoki koiwi  (Repatriation of human remains), Whakahoki taonga (Repatriation of taonga), and Whakahoki toi moko, which is used for the repatriation of toi moko.

We now have a term for biosecurity, Te maru koiora. This is used for measures that are taken to stop the spread or introduction of harmful organisms to human, animal and plant life.

Two new terms for chisels have been added. Whao is used to describe all-purpose chisels and Uhi is the term for chisels that are used for Tā moko.

The scope of the term Kōkiri mana pōti (Suffrage movement) has been clarified.
