A digitised version of Henry James Fletcher's "Index of Māori Names" is now available for access at

The index provides access to information about or references to Māori individuals, boundaries, canoes, trees, landmarks and geographical locations. Fletcher indexed these Māori names from nine books including the Ancient History of the Māori, Old Whanganui, the first volume of the Lore of the Whare Wānanga, and from the first 19 volumes of the Journal of the Polynesian Society, the first 42 volumes of the Transactions of the New Zealand Institute, seven essays from the Transactions and nine Dominion Museum Bulletins.

Rev. Henry James Fletcher's original index is held in the Alexander Turnbull Library, (ATL ref.MS-0782) with whose permission the original index was digitised for incorporation in this reformatted index.

There are 21,889 entries in the index. A full list of the publications that were indexed is at:
