Curious about the culture beyond the haka?
You've seen the haka & full-facial tattoos, and you're curious about the culture behind the intriguing display. This is your opportunity to enter the world of Mitai Village, set in native forest in Rotorua, where you'll be welcomed by locals for an authentic introduction to Maori culture. We'll learn about the arts of Mau Rakau - an ancient Maori fighting technique - and poi dancing. In the evening we'll feast on a traditional ground-smoked hangi meal, watch a cultural performance, and feel our spines tingle as we get to see the famous haka.
