The theme is an acknowledgement of the famous Māori proverb, ‘Ko te kai a te rangatira, he kōrero’ – meaning, the sustenance of chiefs is discourse.
Registrations are $675.00
This includes 3 nights stay and meals provided at the Marae. Due to the location of the Marae there is no alternative accommodation available nearby.
Our programme includes: Haukāinga highlighting key aspects of the marae, harakeke conservation, local activities such as collecting kaimoana at Aohanga beach and relaxing afternoon at Akitio beach.
We will arrange transfers from Palmerston North Airport to Palmerston North Library. The airport is less than 10mins drive to the city square and then an additional 2-hour drive to Te Aroha o Aohanga Marae in Pongaroa.
