Tikipunga High School’s Kapa Haka Rōpu performed for whānau the bracket that they did at the 2016 Te Taitokerau Festival at Otamatea High School. The first video is of Matua Ropata Mahanga explaining two of their waiata and the next video’s are the performance of these ātaahua waiata. The mauri of Ngātiwai is strong in their waiata and performance, ka mau te wehi! Enjoy whānau.
Ropata Mahanga gives a korero about the waiata the rōpu perform.
He waiata maumahara ki a Rangatira Houpeke Piripi, ki a tamaiti Jess.
A love song Houpeke & Mere Piripi used to sing to each other, used by Tikipunga High School for their waiata poi.
