SUNDAY 25th DECEMBER, 2022
Te Matatini Incorporated Society has received confirmation that the following kapa haka have officially withdrawn from Te Matatini Herenga Waka Herenga Tangata Festival 2023.
• Te Kapa Haka o Te Whanau a Kai
• Te Matapihi
𝗥𝘂𝗹𝗲 𝟮(𝗯)𝗶𝗶 says that if rōpū from the National Festival withdraw the following applies:
𝗶. No Kapa Haka may replace that withdrawn Kapa Haka
𝗶𝗶. All Kapa Haka will move up in the Order of Performance.
As a result of these withdrawals the goal is to firstly, balance out the Pools to ensure there is a fair playing field, and secondly to balance out the number of kapa haka performing per day. This is reflected in the changes to the programme, as per below.
