The Polish Heritage of Otago & Southland Charitable Trust (POHOS) was established in 1998 in Dunedin and represents the descendants of those early settlers of Polish origin as well as all Poles and their descendants who have since arrived In New Zealand. The Trust fosters an awareness of Polish heritage in our region and endeavours to protect the material legacy of the early Polish settlement e.g. the church that was built by those early pioneers at Waihola and now stands at Broad Bay. The Trust also encourages and supports cultural, educational and economic links between Poland and New Zealand through public lectures, seminars, exhibitions and cultural activities.
