Tamaki Maori Village

Built by two brothers in 1989, the Tamaki Maori Village is the destination for an authentic Maori experience. If you are looking for a Maori encounter beyond the typical performance found at hotels, this is the place to go.

The village is itself a recreation of an actual Maori settlement, and in this village, guests experience The Chronicles of Uitara, a story following a single warrior line from 3000 BC to present day. Based on true events, the show is reenacted by the most sought-after historical performers in New Zealand. Guests will be enchanted and hooked by the tale, dramatically recreated with action-packed choreography. Following the story, the evening culminates in a traditional hangi feast.

Practical Info

Against many odds, the Tamaki brothers were able to produce their vision of a fantastic, historic story told against as real a backdrop as they could imagine - in this case authentic scenery constructed in an actual forest setting. The result is a faithful tribute to New Zealand's venerable Polynesian heritage, replete with to-the-letter reenactments of Maori rituals and battle dances. As the production moves through the ages, you'll see the Maori warrior line switch adapt to European warfare, as its descendants live, love and fight for the honor of their people.
