In Māori culture we hold two important aspects dear to us. the first being Manaakitanga (Hospitality) and Kaitiakitanga (guardianship of the land) .At WanaHaka® we want you to connect with these 2 important cultural elements.
This Pōwhiri can be done in either Queenstown or Wanaka so please do email first as to your preferred location if required.
You will be greeted by a Wero/Challenge with a Māori Warrior and Taiaha, from here we move through the key elements of the pōwhiri/welcome where we may start as strangers but by the end we end up as whanaua/family.
A truely inspiring cultural experience that combines both the people and the land of Wanaka and Queenstown.
