A Native American Group visited Tauranga as part of their New Zealand tour to explore education among Maori.

The visit was part of a three-week, where they gained an insight into Maori culture in the education system.

The group were hosted by the Wairoa Marae in Bethlehem.

They represent the Navajo, Ute Mountain Ute, Goshute, White Mountain Apache, Dine' and Scottish tribes.

Maringi Ngata-Campbell of Wairoa Marae said they have an "ongoing relationship" with the Native American Group.

Last night at Wairoa Marae the visitors had the opportunity to touch the Te Mauri o Te Matatini (mauri stone of Te Matatini).
