Arrival at Parihaka
Please arrive before 12.00 mid-day Friday the 24th
Of course, we do realise that not everybody who is coming to the gathering will arrive at Parihaka in time for Friday’s Powhiri, but we cannot stress enough how important it is for you to do so if at all possible. You cannot come on to the Marae without first being welcomed on by our hosts. Anyone arriving after Friday’s Powhiri will be welcomed on in a separate ceremony. So, again please do your best to come on Friday before 12.00 mid-day and join us for Pohwiri practice if this is at all possible for you.
There is no cellphone coverage at Parihaka – so if you arrive after Friday’s Powhiri you won’t be able to phone anyone on the Marae so please be patient, we will be watching out for arrivals throughout the weekend.

On Saturday evening we will be having a relaxed open-mike session so take your Guitar, your poetry book, your sword swallowing equipment, poi, hula-hoops or whatever other entertainmenty paraphernalia you’ve got to entertain everyone else
We have received lots of generous donations of food for the gathering helping us to keep costs as low as possible for everyone. Any more donations would be greatly appreciated. If you know that you can bring some extra kai to share, please let us know what you’re taking so we can inform the kitchen working group in advance, if not – just take it along.

Apart from those who will take tents and those who live at Parihaka, most of us will be sleeping communally. The marae which sleeps 80 on matresses in four long rows plus there is a small room that sleeps six which will be reserved that for parents with young children. The matresses have a sheet on top and pillows with pillow cases so people need to bring their own blankets. You’ll need your own towels for showering too. There is space for tents if people want.
What not to bring
Lots of alcohol ;0) – a drink or two in the evening is fine of course, but we do have a lot of hard work to get through and in keeping with the peaceful atmosphere of Parihaka and respect for our hosts, we will keep things relatively quiet before late each night.
We have all been invited to join the otaraua occupation. If you are interested in participating please come self-sufficient for 24 hours in camping conditions from Sunday night.
Those taking children to the gathering may already be aware that child minding will be arranged. This is something to mention at the registration table on your arrival.
