  • Pā sit at the epicentre of our communities. They were places of physical refuge in times of war, and they remain sanctuaries for our mind and spirit.
  • Pā are where we meet to discuss critical issues, where we celebrate occasions of significance and where we strengthen our own understanding of who we are.
  • Te Pā Tū presents culture and kai (cuisine) events – sharing Māori history, traditions, and future aspirations across four hours of celebration and feasting.
