THE MIGHTY MA-ORI Seeing and experiencing native cultures is one of the most rewarding parts of travel. And that is certainly true in New Zealand, where the life and culture of the islands’ powerful Māori still flourish. In ports like Tauranga, Māori for “sheltered anchorage,” you can witness the Māori first-hand at Tamaki Māori Village, winner of New Zealand’s Supreme Tourism Award. You can also see displays of Māori dance, art and culture. A display of native Māori dance at Tamaki Māori Village.
