Tamaki Tours Cultural Maori Experiences

Rotorua | NORTH ISLAND

Tamaki Maori Village, South Pacific’s gateway to the world of ancient Maori,provides a journey back in time to a Pre-European lifestyle of customs and traditions. The evening's festivities include a banquet of succulent food cooked the traditional Maori way as the Maori village comes alive to the sound and activities of tribal songs, dances, myths and legends.
Your experience is inclusive of pick up and drop off from Rotorua accommodation centres, a Maori guide to instruct and assist you, the experience described below and of course, the Hangi meal.
 

RULES AND PROTOCOL

 
  • Enroute to Tamaki Maori Village, your guide will instruct you on the rules and protocol for visiting Marae (meeting grounds). It is customary for the welcoming tribe to send out a challenge. Together you will select a chief to represent those on your coach in the Powhiri (welcome ceremony).
  • On arrival at the venue, nobody must enter the fortified village until the Powhiri (formal welcome) has been performed. The host tribe will send out a toa (warrior) who will challenge the guests, via their elected chief to ascertain if they come in peace. A Teka (peace offering) is placed and received by one of the visiting chiefs. All visitors must remain behind our chiefs throughout the ceremony.
