Māori culture and heritage
Māori culture is a big part of NZ's identity, so respecting, preserving and promoting it is vital.
Whether you're a visitor to NZ or you live here, it's important to be aware of Māori customs and how to interact in Māori culture.
- Māori manners and social behaviour
- Tikanga Māori (general guidelines for interaction in Māori culture)
- Māori traditional law
- Traditional Māori religion
Māori heritage can be broken down into 3 sections. Physical (like burial sites or buildings), natural (like mountains or springs) and intangible (like rituals and knowledge).
