Our region is the home of Ngāpuhi, the largest Iwi in New Zealand, with over 500 years of continuous occupancy. It is the earliest area of Maōri /European interaction dating from well before the Treaty of Waitangi. Kaikohe is the home of Hone Heke Pōkai and Ōkaihau 14 km away of Tāmati Wāka Nene.
It was one of the centers of Kauri logging & Kauri gum digging so we have collections of Maōri Taonga, Engines, Tractors, Kauri Gum, Vehicles, Logging and Saw milling equipment, Vintage buildings, and much more.
Pioneer Village is looking for a Handyperson to join our small team for lots of small repair jobs in our vast collection.
Pioneer Village Kaikohe is looking a volunteer secretary for its board. This is a great opportunity to engage in the decision-making process about the conservation of Kaikohe’s heritage.
