Cultural Experience

The cultural experience offers a hands-on experience, from being welcomed by a Powhiri to your departure closed with a Poroporoake. Discover how Māori transferred their whakapapa (genealogy) through mediums such as; waiata (song), pūrakau (stories) takaro (games), whakairo (carving) and raranga (weaving). See how you can express your own whakapapa in these ways.

You can extend your experiences by opting to experience a traditional Māori meal, a ground cooked hangi. Pre-booking is essential for this so that catering is available. Click here to download information on Awataha and programmes that are available. Contact Education for more information.
