Feel & breath the New Zealand Maori culture first hand
He Tāngata came together in 2018, and was inspired by a team who had a passion to showcase the Māori culture in the South Island and combine that with the delicacy of seafood (kaimoana).
Proudly situated at Ngā Hau e Whā National Marae, He Tāngata is promoting daily tours of an exclusive operating National Marae. We will show Māori protocol through our Pōwhiri (welcoming ceremony) and performance, electrifying examples of kapa haka you have seen. We have infused Māori indigenous ingredients into our buffet, which includes the traditional tastes of Hāngi, and seafood platter including New Zealand’s kaimoana such as crayfish, paua, kina, and oysters.
Allow from 75 minutes to 2 hours for the full experience including lunch or dinner.
