Hui ē, toia, toia mai te waka
Ko “He Kura Te Tangata” te waka
Toia mai kia ū tahi ngā kapa haka kaumātua me āna kōrero ki runga ki tēnei whārangi ipurangi.
E ngā rangatira, e ngā karanga maha,nau mai ki tā tātou whārangi ipurangi.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.
This website provides a forum for senior Māori performing arts groups to share their waiata (songs), news and upcoming events.
He Kura Te Tangata Charitable Trust is a national organization dedicated to uniting Kaumātua Kapa Haka from around Aotearoa - New Zealand.
The Trust’s name “He Kura Te Tangata” means “The human being is precious”.
It attests to the fact, that in the Māori world, each individual is recognized for their intrinsic value as well as their contribution to the well-being of the group.
