Whānau homestays provides opportunities for whānau to host tourist visitors in their homes and recommend tourists onto other whānau homes, highlighting the point of difference and being able to create an authentic mana whenua experience.
Waka racing festival;
Ngāti Paoa are a waka people and this project builds on that strong association with the moana.

The historical geospatial mapping project provides for a real value added offering to iwi members by enabling access to our Mātauranga Māori as it relates to location within our rohe.
