Tikanga - Protocols
For those who have never stayed on a marae there are some important protocols to be aware of. In the introduction session we will be sure that everyone is clear on these. Some basic protocols include not eating in certain spaces, not sitting on tables, shoes off inside etc.
All guests will be provided with clear information about the Tikanga.
Powhiri - Welcome
It is very important that all participants are part of the powhiri welcome on the first day - otherwise you will not be allowed to come onto the marae. Please make sure that your travel arrangements allow for this.
