This year I wrote a play for the men in The Waiata group at Christchurch Mens prisons Drug treatment Programme to perform in front of the whole unit. The ceremony will involve Karakia, Mihimihi, Pūrakau a kēmu named Pako, Matariki waiata and waiata like E ngaki kerikeri and the Haka Ko te reo Māori. The ceremony will finish with a boil up to feed 60 men.
