Tumeke is a word from the language of the native Mâori people of New Zealand. Literally translated to English it means "too much".

In the 20th century in New Zealand it came to be used as an exclamation of excitement, in a similar vein to the term "awesome".

"Tumeke" is now commonly used by youth of both the indigenous Mâori people and European immigrants.
