OUR CULTURE AND IDENTITY
Our Ngāti Toa whakapapa, reo, mātauranga and tikanga are what connects us all as individuals and whānau. It is what underpins our unique identity as Ngāti Toa Rangatira.
Together they are what have led our tūpuna, and continue to lead us today, instilling a sense of pride, passion and commitment to the values that we hold true.
