The Global Peacemakers Pilgrimage to New Zealand & The Waitaha Nation

July 22 to 28, 2018

Being able to visit a Waitaha marae (sacred meeting ground) is an exclusive and unique opportunity, available only by invitation from the counsel of the Waitaha elders. We are welcomed home…into their home; but, more importantly, home within ourselves through the profound wisdom and guidance of sacred energy; Waitaha elders and ancestors; true peace; and the essence of love, as well as life itself. This journey invites you to return to home...to yourself, the essence of who you truly are.

This exclusive journey is by invitation only and this is yours.

The Waitaha Nation of Peace

Waitaha elder Te Porohau Ruka Te Korako
has joined with The Global Peacemakers.

For thousands of years, the Waitaha People of New Zealand have sought peace and harmony with humans, animals and plants. While keeping their wisdom and efforts secret in the past, they are now willing to share this wisdom with the world.

"Everything is allowed, just do no harm"

- Te Porohau Ruka Te Korako, Elder, Waitaha Nation

These are the lands and people where His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been known to go and recharge his batteries, to reconnect and rest. The Waitaha Elder and Chief TePorohau, whom you will meet and learn from, is the counselor and close friend of the Dalai Lama.

Very little is known about the oldest and earliest tribal people of New Zealand because they closed their doors in the 1700's during the discovery by European settlers. They were unknown until 1988, and recently decided to share their wisdom with a few very select groups, starting in 2014.

Their origin begins from the Exodus of Egypt! The ancestors of a "Nation of Waitaha" were the first inhabitants of New Zealand; three groups of people of different races, two of light complexion and one of dark complexion. They arrived in New Zealand from as far as Egypt to the Pacific. Their oral history says they came from “all four directions,” landing on the shores of New Zealand guided by whales. They are a pre-maori / non-maori people who have insisted on living their non-warrior / non-violent ways throughout the centuries.

The Waitaha Nation is a matriarchal nation, known as the Peace Keepers and Water Carriers of the Earth. This theme is powerful and a core component of their wisdom, teaching how to still the water within each of us...finding Peace within.

Unlike all other nations or tribes of the world, you become Waitaha by your character, not your genetic ancestors. There are Waitaha of many genes (Japanese, New Zealand, USA, etc.), but how one becomes Waitaha is decided based on your values, character, and behavior; which is unique to any other part of the world or nations. Therefore, you cannot identify a Waitaha by their “looks,” but, instead, by their character.
