Whakarewarewa’s Maori Performance

While Whakarewarewa was a living village within Rotorua where most of the people residing within its boundaries were related, it was also a major tourist attraction.

I strolled to the concert hall on the hill, and sat next to a cute Maori child who seemed to know all the words to the songs performed. From the mighty haka, to the poi dance, to the stick dance, this was a leap into Maori culture.
