Maori Culture

For Maori Culture visit a Maori Village Rotorua and discover a true Maori experience Rotorua

Embrace manaakitanga; a warm and genuine welcome

Rotorua has a deep Māori heritage and a strong culture of manaakitanga (hospitality) and kaitiakitanga (guardianship of this land).
We’ve been welcoming visitors to this place for generations with a warmth that extends well beyond the volcanic geothermal action that has shaped the landscape. It’s a warmth that sits deeply in the culture of the local Māori people.

Whether it’s an encounter with a Māori guide, a hongi greeting, talking to a carver or weaver, experiencing a hangi (food cooked in an earth oven), facing a haka or hearing age old stories, you’ll be enriched by your time here.
