Hailing from Ngāti Raukawa, Mōtai-Tangata-Rau make their fourth appearance at the Tainui Waka Kapa Haka Festival.

Established in 2005, leaders Paraone Gloyne and Ngahuia Kopa have consolidated their rōpū to give a staunch performance today, with more than one item standing out in their bracket.

Here, their women, and men, astound the crowd with their exceptional poi skills.
