New Zealand’s Te Ngai Tuahuriri War dance Haka at International Stage at CNE in 2009.
Te Ngai Tuahuriri originated from the Waimakariri district of Te Waipounamu (South Island) of Aotearoa (New Zealand) and belong to the Ngai Tahu tribe (www.ngaitahu.co.nz).
Their performance incorporates the traditional elements of the Maori culture including the use of karakia (Prayer), korero purakau (legend), moteatea (ancient chant), as well as contemporary presentations of haka (war dance), poi (female dance), waiata-a-ringa (group dances) and tititoria (games with sticks).
The group also uses traditional wind instruments such as putaatara and koauau to accompany some works. Instruments of weaponry such as mere-pounamu, patu and taiaha also feature in their performance.
