Time to dust off the poi and warm up the voice because Te Atakura is just around the corner. Te Atakura is the non-competitive Ngāi Tahu whānau kapa haka festival. It’s a great time to catch up with whānau and friends, kōrero with our aunties, uncles, tāua, pōua and moko, gossip with our mates, watch some awesome performances…and then jump up on the stage and perform.

Date: 12 October 2013
Venue: Aurora Centre – Burnside High School
Cnr Greers Rd and Memorial Ave
Start time: 9:30am.

There are limited onsite food outlets. Whānau are encouraged to bring picnic lunches or to take advantage of the food outlets in Burnside and surrounding suburbs. The event is free and open to anyone who wants to come and support.
