About the Experience
****Dates available on request****
We share our land, our food and our stories. Our whānau Māori tourism enterprise offers an introduction into tikanga Māori, traditional Māori kai and food gathering practices, rich kōrero and a unique insight into Te Ao Māori. Share in our healing journey as we walk the landscapes of our painful pasts. Discover our mounga (mountains) and their surrounding landscapes as we share our stories through the eyes of Pūrākau Taranaki.
Nau mai, haere mai! Our kainga (family homestead) is based at Teikaroa - a traditional fishing and gardening village of our local marae, Parihaka. Famous for it's visionary passive resistance movement in the face of colonial land grabbing in the 19th century which inspired Ghandi and Martin Luther King. We are located right on the coast famous for it's surf breaks and traditional kai (food) gathering. We have a half acre section where we grow most of our own kai. We keep bees and chickens and see opportunities to incorporate more animals into our food system.
We use matauranga Maori (traditional Maori knowledge) and permaculture principles in our maara (garden) and work with the seasons to suit our lifestyle.
Look forward to hearing from you!
