A priceless experience that will connect your guests to the history of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Connect through culture, and the world becomes flat.

The haka pōwhiri is a traditional welcome and an integral part of Māori culture. When you formally welcome guests with a haka pōwhiri, you inject meaning and purpose to your event and set the intention for that which follows. 

A wero marks the beginning of a haka pōwhiri. A guest, chosen to act as chief, raises the peace token. Once the peace token is accepted, the guests enter the venue to the call of the karanga.  An energetic haka pōwhiri and demonstration of the hongi, conclude the ceremony.

Following the formalities of the pōwhiri, our troupe will perform three acts to complete the ceremony.
