Matariki Festival – Te Taumata Kapa Haka

Mānawatia a Matariki! Celebrate the Māori new year at Matariki Festival 2022 with exhilarating kapa haka performances in shopping centres across Tāmaki Makaurau.

Watch the best local kapa haka groups popping up across the region for free lunchtime performances and poi giveaways in celebration of Matariki.

In tradition, the very first kapa haka act was associated with the chief Tinirau when he instructed a group of women to perform for his enemy, Kae.

Kapa haka has evolved over the centuries, and we continue to marvel at its power, beauty, and ability to share histories, kaupapa and te reo Māori.

Visit the Matariki Festival website for the full programme.

Brought to you by Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland Council and Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei. Supported by Vector Lights and flava.
