      ... as this is the ultimate insult to the Maori people. This worried Suze immensely. The welcome consisted of the Maori warriors using their spears and moving around whilst making their eyes really wide and sticking out their tongues, the women were 'wailing' whilst this was happening.

      Te Puia is also the home of the national carving & weaving schools, set up to preserve those traditional Maori arts which were in danger of being forgotten.
