Profiles of some New Zealand Bahá'ís
New Zealand is a centre for multiculturalism. The treasure of Aotearoa lies in our rich Maori heritage and the fruit of that treasure is a continuing progression towards complete harmony between the native peoples of this land and all the migrant communities that have made New Zealand their home.
The Bahá'ís in this country have come from all walks of life - from varying ethnicities, cultures and creeds. They are all unique, with many different skills, talents, professions and lifestyles, and yet each and every one is united under the umbrella of one common Faith and their love for Bahá'u'lláh.
To get in touch with your local Bahá'í community contact the Bahá’í National office.
