Two Maori Warriors stand with their makeshift weapons and their painted faces, staring intensely into the camera at the Wairakei Terraces Maori Village near Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand. A visit to this Maori Village gives a visitor the chance to learn firsthand about the history of the Maori people and their culture and see how it has enriched the country of New Zealand for hundreds of years.

A visit to the Wairakei Terraces Maori Village is a chance to experience the Maori culture in depth and really immerse yourself in it for an evening - it's something you will never forget. When you arrive at the Maori Village your group will be challenged and greeted in the Maori way by touching noses and that begins your evening of tasting Maori food, hearing stories about Maori culture and watching a performance of song, dance and Haka. The Maori culture is still steeped in mystery and intrigue and it is exciting to outsiders to get to be a part of that, even if for only one evening.

It is thought that the Maori people arrived in Polynesia sometime around 1300 and they settled the islands and made them their home. It was after the Europeans arrived that their numbers began to decline due to disease and fighting, but in the 1960s the Maori people enjoyed a cultural revival.
