Raukura maintain their reign for another two years

By Regan Paranihi

The defending champs have won the He Pouwhenua He Puapua 2018 and will hold the title for another two years.

Over the last few days, Palmerston North has hosted thousands of people at the He Pouwhenua He Puapua Secondary Schools Kapa Haka Competition.

Forty-one teams took to the stage to vie for their chance to claim the title. Today nine of the forty-one teams had a second and final chance to wow the judges in the hope of claiming the number one spot.

Those groups were Raukura, Te Maureea Whiritoi, Hoāni Waititi Marae, Te Piringa, Ngā Taiātea Wharekura, Ngā Tapuwae, Te Rāwhitiroa, Rakaumangamanga and Ngā Puna o Waiōrea.

All nine teams fought to the bitter end and at the end of the day, all teams are winners at the end of the day.
