The Way of the New Zealand Warrior

The Way of the Warrior is also called the Army's ethos and values.

As warriors of the New Zealand Army – Ngāti Tūmatauenga, there is a single, unifying set of core values by which we all serve.

Courage | Tū Kaha
Commitment | Tū Tika
Comradeship | Tū Tira
Integrity | Tū Māia

These values are as important as the warfighting skills we will all develop as part of our modern, agile, highly adaptive, light combat force.

Within the pages of this booklet you will find an insight into what makes up our warrior culture, and a selection of stories taken from the thousands created which clearly demonstrate the NZ Army values in action.
