WORKSHOP – HAKA INTRODUCTION
Together with my niece Kieran Bristowe-Timu (Ngati Porou, Nga Puhi, Te Atiawa) we offer a three-hour introduction into Maori culture, explored through haka. For anyone who is interested, we will guide you through authentic explanation, presentation, performance and understanding of Maori haka.

Haka expert, Inia Maxwell (Ngati Whakaue/Ngati Rangiwewehi) has often remarked “in every haka there is a message or a tribute to somebody, it’s a vehicle for us to be able to express ourselves". This workshop is designed to give all participants the opportunity to express yourselves through Maori culture.
