The Waitaha groups

EPISODE TWO – THE WAITAHA GROUPS

In this episode we talk with the three qualifying Waitaha groups, Ngā Manu a Tāne, Te Ahikōmau a Hamoterangi and Te Pao a Tahu, who will represent the region at Te Matatini 2015. Each group will share the origins and the kaupapa matua of their groups and the vibe amongst the group leading into the biggest Māori event in the world. We also talk with experienced performers and first time Te Matatini performers and what it means to them to performing on their home ground.
