Where can I get the best Maori cultural experience in New Zealand?

The Maori people of New Zealand are known as the tangata whenua – the people of the land. Te Ara encyclopaedia states that they likely arrived from the Pacific Islands around 1300 AD, settling along the coasts to hunt seals and moa.

Much of their early history is hard to determine due to Maori having no written language until Europeans settlers arrived in the 1800s. However, there are many traditions that have been passed down through the generations, and that you can still witness today.

Here is where to get the best cultural experiences here in Aotearoa.

A self-driving paradise!
