The Mataatua Regional Kapa Haka Competition for 2012 will be held in Omaio on the 24th (Pohiri) & 25th of February.

There are 4 groups from Tuhoe who are competingthis year. They are Ruataahuna Kakahu Mauku, Te Karu, TeWhaiti Nui a Toiand Nga Uri o Mahanga. There is also 1 group in the whakangahau sectionand they arethe Korosins from Ruataahuna.The performers of the Korosins are our kuia, koroua, papa and whaea.

Haka practice for our4 Tuhoe Roopu began last year and our Korosins roopu in their 3rd week of practice.

Iharaira Temara is performing for the Korosins and is committed to getting to his practices every weekend. He was on a 10 day training exercise programme, although this ended on the 20th of January he is adamant to keep this up as fitness and health play a very important role in Kapa Haka.

Tuhoe Ki Kawerau otherwise known at Regionals as Nga Uri o Mahanga have not been frequent participants on the Mataatua Regionals stage. They last performed in 2005 and are very excited and proud to be able to represent Tuhoe once again. None of this is possible without the teachings and insight of their kaiako, Reremoana and Herehuia Pitau.

Hosted by Te Whanau a Apanui at Omaio. This is a showcase of traditional contemporary performing arts presented by tribal exponent groups of Mataatua Kapa Haka. Smoke Free Drug Free Alcohol Free Violence Free.

Na reira Tuhoe whanui, me kii te korero Mahi Tahi, Haka Tahi, Mauri Ora!
