 Te Matatini is committed to broadening our outreach in to schools and the community.

Whilst the biennial Te Matatini festival is our biggest project and a popular and significant event on the Māori calendar it is not the only thing that Te Matatini does.

Through our thirteen delegates we have Aotearoa covered and we are investing in growing participation in Kapa Haka at the grass roots level. We also extend our reach in to Australia through our Whenua Moemoeā delegate, Ihaka Cotter.

Te Matatini also helps to fund and support the national primary and secondary school Kapa Haka competitions each year.
