Taroi Black

Nā te komiti kapa haka ā rohe o Te Taitokerau te whakatau, ka whakataetae ngā kapa ki mua i ngā kaiwhiriwhiri, kaua ki mua i te iwi tūmatanui, nā te mate COVID-19 te take.

He whakatau i āta whakaaroarotia e ngā mema o ngā rōpū katoa i tae atu ki te hui a te komiti whakahaere i te taiopenga "Maranga Mai E Te Iwi" mō ngā whakataetae kapa haka ā rohe 2020 i Te Taitokerau. 

“We will work with the venue owners to ensure all logistics are safe,” te kōrero a Ropata Diamond.

I whai wāhi hoki ngā rōpū ki te whiriwhiri i te wā e tika ana kia tū ki mua i ngā kaiwhiriwhiri.
