The North's Festival of Māori Performance

April 19, 2018, 1:49 p.m.

The Te Tai Tokerau Festival is the premiere Kapa haka event for the High Schools of Northland. Twenty seven High Schools from Warkworth's Mahurangi College to the Far North's Te Rangi Āniwaniwa were welcomed to come and perform. Unlike competitions, there are no judges or scoreboards, these festivals are about our schools showcasing their ability and passion of the Māori performing art of kapa haka. 

Kerikeri High School and Ngāti Rehia were the hosts this year being the 43rd festival which was first held in Opononi in 1976. The māuri has been passed on to Whangarei Girls and Boys High schools and Ngāti Wai to host the next Te Tai Tokerau Festival in Whangarei 2019.
