Visit Parihaka to share a story of survival against all odds. A story of heartbreak and tragedy, a story of promise and redemption.

In 1865 the settlement of Parihaka was created by the Taranaki Prophets Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi as a spiritual refuge. A place where the art of passive resistance was founded.

Over two thousand Maori joined them and so the story of Parihaka became embedded in the hidden conscience of this country.

We want to showcase our culture and traditional practices that are woven into this landscape and the hearts and minds of our people.

We welcome you to hear our ancient chants, the beat of our drum, the twirl of our poi and the quiver of our voices. Partake in our cultural cuisine, food that we harvest and source locally.

Wander with us as we follow the footsteps of our ancestors and as we journey around our village and visit the traditional meeting houses of our people.
