Mike Stevens, nō Ngāi Tahu ki Awarua, is a Dunedin-based freelance historian. Raised in Bluff, he and his whānau are well known for their continued use of pōhā during the seasonal tītī (muttonbird) harvest and this was the focus of his PhD completed at the University of Otago. His research has more recently focused on Bluff itself, which is both an industrial port and a Ngāi Tahu heartland village. Mike works with the Archives Team at Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and contributed to the award-winning edited collection of biographies Tāngata Ngāi Tahu: People of Ngāi Tahu, published in 2017. He is currently preparing entries for a second volume of Tāngata Ngāi Tahu that he is co-editing with Helen Brown.
