The entire community is invited to join Tūranga iwi in a mass pōhiri as they welcome the Polynesian voyagers on the waka Haunui, Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti and Tahitian va’a tipaerua Fa’afaite.

An evocative mix of on-water and on-land ceremonies that take in the entire bay will honour the ancestors and local sites of significance, before crews come ashore at Te Waiohiharore (The Cut) for the formal on land pōhiri. When it comes to pōhiri - everyone is invited to participate, or you can take it in from one of several vantage points around Te Waiohiharore.

This event is part of the Tuia 250 Encounters programme.
