Since the year 1999 the Pae Taiohi has been held within the Manawatü/Horowhenua region.
This initiative emerged from the aspirations of many people, such as teachers, whänau and students. There was a need for Kapa Haka Excellence in Secondary Schools to be exposed, acknowledged and celebrated.

Pae Taiohi was born in 1999 as the inaugural Secondary Schools Kapa Haka National Finals were held in Auckland in the year 2000.

It provides a platform to promote, advance and practice:
- Whänaungatanga, kotahitanga and community
- The recognition of Mäori knowledge, culture and arts
- The creative skills within the whanau e.g. making piupiu, poi, taniko, pare raranga
- Upskilling whanau in Te Reo Maori
- The valued and continued participation and contribution of young people
- To foster positive relationships between schools, tangata whenua, community and cultures
- Become exposed and more familiar with Marae and tikanga/kawa respectively
- Being in direct contact with Kuia, Kaumatua and experts/specialists in the Maori Performing Arts field who lead and teach us in the skills above during hui, noho marae, working bees, workshops and whanau gatherings. There have been and will be a number of opportunities for this to happen
- To empower and inspire Rangatahi in Maori tradition, customs and values
- To provide positive role models
- To set clear and achievable goals with a commitment and dedication to the survival and revitalisation of Maori language and culture accomplished through the medium of Maori performing arts, (traditional and contemporary Maori songs and performance), oral language, traditional customs and values
- To nourish, nurture and encourage Rangatahi within the customs and traditions of a rich cultural heritage
- To enhance self-worth, self-esteem, pride and a positive identity of being a Maori in today’s society
Associated with each Schools Kapa Haka are a large number of talented Kapa Haka exponents and tutors passing on their expertise and wisdom to the next generation to learn, master, perform and cherish accordingly.

Young and old, seasoned and novice, current and past performers alike are ready and willing to input in preparing their associated schools Kapa Haka for the Pae Taiohi competition, whereby the three (3) groups that score the highest aggregate points will compete at the National competitions (to be hosted by the Ngati Kahungunu region) in 2016.
