Watch President Obama Get a Jazzy, Official New Zealand Welcome

By TheBlast Staff

President Barack Obama touched down in New Zealand and the country brought a jazzy authentic welcome wagon!

Number 44 was greeted in the Kiwi country by a pōwhiri which is a Māori welcoming ceremony that is rolled out for special guests.

The former Pres looked delighted as the ceremony, which was led by iwi Ngāti Whātua o Ōrākei according to the New Zealand Herald, unfolded before him.

The Washington Post reports that while in the South Pacific, President Obama will be hitting up the country's famous golf courses and speaking with communities and leaders though none of that will be open to the press.
