Te Roopu Waiata here at Manawatu District Council enjoy a weekly waiata hui.

Te Roopu Waiata here at Manawatu District Council enjoy a weekly waiata hui. We practise waiata for mayoral events such as Community Honours and Citizenship ceremonies. This is a song about our whenua.

"Ruahine Maunga, Oroua te awa. Ngati Kauwhata te iwi. Tena koutou katoa." This waiata is special to us, it was written by one of our leaders who is no longer with us, Whaea Sue Cavanagh. Nga mihi.
