About Marahau Whenua

Our legacy dates back centuries when our ancestors arrived in Te Tau Ihu in a series of epic migrations.  

Wakatū is the guardian of this legacy, and we have created this exclusive opportunity for our families to connect to our whenua in a direct and appropriate way.  

Deepening our understanding of our customary landscape informs our identity and our responsibilities to our legacy.  Marahau is for us.  Experience it, enjoy it, protect it.
