Te Hono ki te Ao - Visitor Centre

From NZD $0.00
  • Duration: 10 Minutes (approx.)
  • Location: Whakatane, Bay of Plenty

The Visitor Centre offers a unique opportunity to learn some of the
local history from a Ngati Awa viewpoint.  Through our Forest of
Knowledge we hope you leave understanding a little about:

  • The Maori world view (Te Ao Maori)

  • The local people and the place (Ngati Awa iwi and the Whakatane region)

  • The buildings, layout and protocols of our marae (Te Mānuka Tūtahi Marae)

We encourage all who visit us to spend 10 minutes in our little
theatre viewing a ten minute DVD on the journey of Mataatua, this will
really put into perspective how lucky we all are to have the opportunity
to see Mataatua today.
