Join us to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Māori Contingent landing at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli. Our celebration of haka and waiata (traditional song and dance) is presented by senior performing artists from around New Zealand. Kaumātua (elder) groups from around the country perform tribal waiata-a-ringa (action songs) and haka (war dances) from the First World War era. Included will be memorable classics such as ‘Te Ope Tuatahi’ by Sir Āpirana Ngata and ‘E Pari Rā’ by Paraire Tōmoana. The New Zealand Post Kaumātua Kapa Haka festival is part of Te Papa’s events to celebrate Matariki. Please revisit this page soon for a link to the full programme.

Held at Soundings Theatre, Level 2, Museum of Te Papa Tongarewa.
