KAARA DRUMS OF OUR FOREFATHERS
The Monday, Wednesday and Friday sunset cultural nights include hosted roundtrip transport, a guided tour of the village, tapu lifting ceremony, warrior welcome, complimentary cocktail, traditional Umu (underground oven) feast and a spectacular stage show. You will experience a rare, authentic performance of our ancient heritage from the era of Pre-Christian times up to today.
Our dancers, musicians, chefs, barmen and guides are all descendants of Ariki (High Chief) Tinomana and are proud to be part of the extended family which brings this mountain village back to life – for you! Puaikura villagers are involved in all aspects of the Highland Paradise experience, as guides, dancers, drummers, warriors, weavers, carvers, cooks, medicinal experts and many more. Most are understudied by village children – a legacy for the future.
Guests are transported by coach from their accommodation in the late afternoon to Highland Paradise where an evening of utterly unique and truly authentic cultural entertainment and feasting awaits!
