The Kamira Manuscripts are a series of 15 books (approximately 2,500 pages) written between 1902 and 1950 by Takou Kamira. They contain notes from wananga sessions as well as personal writings. They are completely in te reo and relate to ancient times prior to the arrival of Europeans to Aotearoa.
They are considered to be one of the most comprehensive collections of knowledge in the Tai Tokerau and comprise possibly the largest single collection of knowledge from one source, that spans the longest time frame.
