Whānau Card

Through an Act of Parliament, Kiwis and international visitors have directly contributed to the safeguarding and perpetuation of traditional Māori knowledge for over 50 years. Te Puia | New Zealand Māori Arts & Crafts Institute has funded scholarships so that this treasured knowledge is passed on to future generations – He Tāonga Tuku Iho.

By joining the Whānau Card Legacy, you not only get fantastic opportunities and membership benefits at Te Puia | New Zealand Māori Arts & Crafts Institute, but you also become part of the legacy supporting the valuable work that contributes to the very fabric of our country.

For the first time ever, we are extending our Whānau Card Legacy beyond Rotorua to all our whānau in Aotearoa New Zealand.
