Akoranga Maurakau Tuatahi (My First Maurakau Lesson)

The new year for kapa haka at school started today. Teaching the year 7&8s , are Mr G, and Miss Tito. Mr G, is kindly giving up more of his time to teach maurakau at school. This is a little video of what we learnt today, at my first maurakau class. Its a little shabby but at the end of the term I'm going to upload another video to show how much I've improved. Hope you enjoy :)

  4. I roto i ngā kōrero a Ms T, Tēnā koe e te kōhine toa, me tou ngākaunui ki te hīkoi i roto i ngā tapuwae o ngā kaumātua, o ngā kuia.

    Kia ora Tyla-Marie, I would just like to support the comments made by Ms T, you will be such a wonderful young leader for the school and your community and I have enjoyed the way you have embraced the language and culture, including Mau Rākau, I look forward to watching you progress both in Kapa Haka, Mau Rākau and particularly the development in your leadership
