Kahurangi | Te Wiki 2023

Kelly Gee Kahurangi

I work for the council in my local district and we have a waiata group. When I joined the group we basically started with no experience, zero songs and now we have enough songs to support blessings, pōwhiri, mihi whakatau and so on. We have reached out to the community and have offered the public to attend our practice sessions once a week during Mahuru Māori to learn waiata of the local area and also songs to support the Te Reo Māori Movement eg: Toku reo, Toku ohooho, Whakarongo and Karanga rā.
