Waipapa Poukai – 12 March 2019

The Poukai is an annual series of visits by the Māori king to Kīngitanga marae around and beyond the Waikato region, a tradition that dates back to the 19th century. The very first poukai at Waipapa was held on on 12 March 1885. Kiingi Tawhiao established this date for all future Waipapa poukai.

Nau mai, haere mai.
