Meet your Ngati
Porou kaitiaki (guide) in Ruatoria at an agreed time before making your way to
the base of Maunga Hikurangi. You will then be transported by 4WD up to the
sacred site of Te Takapau a Maui.
During the ascent
and at the site, authentic stories providing insight into the local region are
shared, along with korero (talk) about each of the nine large pou (Maori
carvings) which depict the stories of Maui. A highly revered ancestor of the
Ngati Porou people and a huge part of Ngati Porou history.

land and is an offering to you for your time being with us.
