The Kahurangi Dance Group

Kiaora everyone. Kiaora.

The Kahurangi Dance Group performed in our school hall this morning. It was an amazing performance. They told us about the beginning of the Maori world and how everyone became to be.

They told us about the poi and rakau, that they used, and the meanings of them. The long poi represents birds and the short poi the beat of the heart - our life force.

The show lasted for an hour and all the school enjoyed listening, watching and learning.

On Thursday the 23rd of July Room 13 went to the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. We talked about Parihaka the Maori war against the Europeans who tried to take over their land. Afterwards everyone designed their own pictures of Parihaka.
