Ko Tane is the South Islands only Maori Cultural Performance and Hangi.

Ko Tane Living Maori Village is located at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Christchurch, where maori culture and conservation meet to give a unique glimpse into the way of life of the South Island Ngai Tahu Maori people before the arrival of the Europeans.

Be guided through and welcomed to our village with a powerful challenge by our fearsome warrior. Enter onto the Pa (village) site with a haka powhiri of welcome. Relax as our Maori cultural group entertain you with unforgettable traditional dancing. Learn the awesome haka (war dance) and the intricate poi dance (swinging ball) and feel the emotions of our waiata aroha (love songs).

Enjoy a four course dinner with traditional hangi mains where the food is cooked underground long and slow on stones that are heated in a pit.
