Re-Creating the Old Ways

Image Supplied by Tamaki Maori Village, Rotorua.
The Tamaki Maori Village just outside Rotorua is a re-created village that presents Maori life as it used to be – complete with buildings, carving, weaving, singing, dance, moko (tattooing) and traditional welcomes. Night visitors are also treated to Maori kapa haka performances and a traditional hangi meal. This photograph shows a traditional pataka or storehouse to the left of the warrior performing a traditional challenge.
