Te Urewera

This area may not have created an official bilingual status, but as with many things in Te Urewera, it doesn't need to tell others about it, it just is. The isolation of Te Urewera has ensured it's a real-life Wakanda as depicted in the Black Panther movie — a bastion of indigenous life. The people of Tūhoe have a different Māori language story from other iwi, largely retaining their native tongue through this isolation, and it's not surprising many renowned experts of Te reo emerged from this area. Venturing into Te Urewera is full of natural wonders in flora, fauna and whānau.
