This blog provides a visual-verbal snapshot of Maori culture and contemporary Maori lifestyles in modern New Zealand. It presents my own experiences and observations of Maori culture and is not intended in anyway to be the definitive view on all things Maori, but rather an introduction for those who want to know more about Maori culture and its place in everyday bicultural New Zealand.

I loved this wall finish in the cafe at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. I suspect the design is derived from, or inspired by traditional Maori tukutuku panelling. www.tepapa.govt.nz
