Tartan Ferret

New Zealand

The National Museum, Te Papa Tongarewa www.tepapa.govt.nz  recently ran an exhibition on early Scots in NZ.
The Dictionary of NZ has a wealth of relevant material www.teara.govt.nz/search?keys=scots&form_type=search&form_id=teara_search_form
There are seven Highland Games held in NZ annually. The most noteable are held in small out-of-the way centres like Waipu, Turakina and Paeroa (all in the North Island). The South Island has strong Scottish associations with Otago and Southland provinces.
The Auckland Scottish Clans Association maintains a website of contacts for the various clan societies and Highland Games societies at www.scottishclans.co.nz/index.htm

We are grateful to Ian Dickson of the Clan Keith Society in New Zealand for the above. We would welcome more input from  NZ so if anyone else fancies getting their name 'in lights' then please contact us.
