Ngāti Kahungunu trace their origins to the Tākitimu waka. According to Ngāti Kahungunu traditions, Tākitimu arrived in Aotearoa from Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. The people of Ngati Kahungunu have worked as marae, whānau, hapū and iwi to bring together Te Matatini Festival which is the biggest gathering of Māori to celebrate Māori performing arts. The festival is managed by an organisation named after the festival Te Matatini. This organisation are charged with organising the biennial competition but the local iwi of Ngati Kahungunu have made so much happen on the ground, hosting kapa haka from around Aotearoa Whanui. Ka mihi ki ngā haukāinga o nga hapū o Ngati Kahungunu.
