Maori Customs



Hopefully you can find something of use in the following pages for future visits home. Often those of us far removed from the ways of home are found wanting when visiting our marae or attending a traditional Maori event. Feel free to take advantage of some of the resources within these pages should you have to mihi, waita or karakia.

To paraphrase Sir James Henarae; "Maoritanga is the accepted word for Maori culture, which encompasses the whole Maori lifestyle - tribal living, behaviour, thought, feeling and experience, passed on from generation to generation. There has been a resurgence of interest by Maori in our own culture and a growing desire to know and experience this today."
