Listen to mountains, rivers, and landmarks speak - seamlessly receive cultural info about sites of significance around Aotearoa New Zealand using our in-app guides and proximity tech.
Māori are the indigenous peoples of New Zealand. We have inhabited these beautiful shores for many centuries. Over time, our history and cultural stories have evolved and flourished. It is these same stories that help define who we are as a people. It is through story that we maintain our cultural values and transfer knowledge to future generations.
