While travelling around New Zealand, my classmate and I visited the Maori village called Tamaki.
It’s been rated one of the best experiences in New Zealand, and I can definitely agree with that.
We were greeted with a traditional Haka. Then we were shown a game that Maori children used to play. They told stories about their family, about the tattoo traditions, and a lot of other things.
After the whole seance, the Maori family had prepared a big dinner for us.
It doesn’t really sound like something special, but I was amazed that they could keep it as authentic as they could even though everyone knows they don’t live like that normally.
Tamaki Maori Village is a must see when going to New Zealand.
