Maori Culture Cruise!

Last night staff at the Lakes District Museum & Gallery were invited on a Maori Culture Boat Cruise around Lake Wakatipu.

Whilst we were on board we visited a typical polynesian style canoe, and learnt about Maori New Zealand history, as well as why Maori visited and lived in the Wakatipu region. We learned a lot and it was a fantastic experience. During the trip we also received performances of a local haka, waita, and viewed a Moa bone and other artefacts to do with Maori history.

Teachers - if you're looking for something extra for your kids to do whilst on camp, I highly recommend the Maori Culture Cruise as it provides a fantastic platform for learning about Maori culture and legends for around New Zealand as well as focusing on the Wakatipu region!
