Te Matatini Web Series episode 5 part 2

Here we have the final episode of the Te Matatini Web Series, He Ngākau Aroha. In this episode we talk with Mana Whenua (Ngāi Tūāhuriri), the governance group, Te Pātuitanga and the chairman and executive director of Te Matatini who provide feedback on how the festival went.

We also talk with haka experts who tell us about the quality of haka at this year’s Te Matatini. Head judge, Hohepa Harawira, talks about the roles and responsibilities of the judges.

This year’s champions, Te Kapa Haka o Te Whānau a Apanui will conclude the web series. We talk with their male leader Tamati Waaka, who gives us some background on the group.
