*Rewa’s Village is a full-scale reconstruction of a Mäori village which recaptures the atmosphere
of the average kainga (unfortified village) in pre-European times.
Traditionally each sub-tribe built a pä (fortified village) on a hilltop or some other easily defended
position. In contrast, the kainga was a temporary arrangement built close to the kumara fields or
to other sources of food.
In times of peace most would live in the kainga, but in times of danger would desert the kainga
for the greater safety of the more permanent pä. www.rewasvillage.co.nz
