By Te Ao Māori News

The Waitaha Senior Regional Kapa Haka Competition showcased an array of amazing talent this year and the hosts of next year’s National Te Matatini competition proved a force to be reckoned with.

The Kaumatua Kapa Haka o Ngāi Tūāhuriri was one of those impressive groups that has been active since the 2008 Te Papa Matariki Festival.

Isla Crofts-Howse and Aroha Reriti-Crofts tutor the group while Aroha also holds the important role of Manukura Wāhine. Daniel Bennett is the Manukura Tāne.
