Discover authentic cultural experiences
Empowering indigenous communities through tourism
We’re a social startup and indigenous owned (Māori) company working with indigenous communities and tourism organisations in our home country Aotearoa New Zealand to create jobs and business opportunities for indigenous communities. Maori make up less than 1% of small businesses in New Zealand and are nearly three times likely to be unemployed. Our purpose is to help Maori and other indigenous communities around the world build sustainable lifestyles for themselves and their families by sharing their culture with travellers. 100% of experience costs go directly to local operators and their families with an additional fee to keep our kaupapa (mission) sustainable.
We make it easier to discover authentic cultural experiences by sharing what makes our culture and way of life unique through informative articles, beautiful photos and inspiring videos created by indigenous storytellers around the world.
Save time searching for cultural experiences.
We curate the most unique and authentic cultural experiences in New Zealand with plans to soon share experiences in the Pacific islands and Australia. Whether it’s with aspiring indigenous hosts that we’ve worked with personally in their homes and communities or experienced indigenous tourism operators who have been delivering the best cultural experiences for years, we bring all those experiences together on Stay Native to make it easier for you to find.
