Practice is underway for our kapa haka group, which will be performing at this year’s Te Atakura Festival in October. Future practices will be on Sunday afternoons in Christchurch (for times and venue, or to join the group, contact Maani Stirling at [email protected]).

Practices in Kaikōura will be held at Takahanga Marae on the second Saturday of each month, from 10am. The practices in Kaikōura coincide with our rūnanga meetings, which are held on Sundays. All whānau and friends are encouraged to join in for what is a fantastic time together, learning waiata with a special emphasis on all things Ngāti Kurī. Maani’s cooking is not too bad either.
