The site uses the Kete software - an open source, web based program. Find out more about Kete.

Since its beginnings, Kete New Plymouth has grown into a healthy and popular digital archive. The site is an online taonga for the people of today as well as those in the future. It is focused on Taranaki and its people and includes contemporary and historical stories, images, videos and audio.

  • Community baskets e.g. ''Local stories' and 'Taranaki Family Biographies'
  • Puke Ariki Baskets e.g. 'Plymouth Company Settlers' and 'War Memorials WWI and WWII in Taranaki'.
