The Many Faces

Our name, bestowed upon us by Professor Wharehuia Milroy, acknowledges the many faces who bring life to Kapa Haka.

They include the thousands of Kapa Haka performers, tutors and composers, young and old, who bring Kapa Haka to life every day, at home and on the marae, in schools and communities and at regional, national and international events.

They also include the many individuals and whānau who work tirelessly and voluntarily behind the scenes supporting their rōpū and ensuring Kapa Haka is sustained from the grassroots of iwi, hapu, whānau to the national and international stages.

Māori Performing Arts brings together people of all ages, all backgrounds, all beliefs, Māori and non-Māori alike, participants and observers. When I look I see many faces, young and old
