About Us

The Little People of New Zealand is a national voluntary society of Little People, families of Little People, and other people interested in their welfare.

Who is a little person? Any person whose height at maturity does not exceed 1.47 metres (4 ft 10 in).

Any Little Person of any age, any member of the family of a Little Person, and any other person interested can join the Little People of New Zealand by paying the annual subscription.

Our Key Message Is:

“Walk Tall!”

The more members the society has, the stronger will be its voice in improving the quality of life for Little People. If you are a Little Person, and if your life is already full and satisfying, you are in a position to lead others toward the same experience.

A little person can live in two 'worlds' – a small world and an average size world. A person who finds happiness in both has nothing to lose, but a person who hides in one of the two worlds must always live with fear of evasion or contact with the other world. For this person, there is no real truth – not even to himself.

Membership Benefits:

  • Receive our quarterly newsletter, "Small Talk".
