Kaumātua (elder) groups from around the country perform tribal waiata-a-ringa (action songs) and haka (war dances) from the First World War era. Included will be memorable classics such as ‘Te Ope Tuatahi’ by Sir Āpirana Ngata and ‘E Pari Rā’ by Paraire Tōmoana. 

The most beautiful kapa haka event in the country, the New Zealand Post Kaumātua Kapa Haka festival is part of Te Papa’s events to celebrate Matariki, the Māori New Year.
