Maori Language

The Maori language is going through a renaissance, as more and more Maori choose to learn their language, and schools teach Maori as core subjects as well as total immersion.  Learn some Maori words here.


Maori Haka

The Maori haka dance is well-known around the world because of the haka performed by the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team before each international match.  Read more about the Haka here.  We also have haka t-shirts, and the words to the All Blacks haka .

Hi, Received my lovely slippers today and I am very happy love the colour. My current NZ slippers are just worn out after many years.
I am more than satisfied as I know my new pair will last a long time, I have bought my slippers from NZ for many years as I'm assured they will last as I wear them all the time inside and out.
