Te Pikikōtuku o Rongomai was the second group to represent Te Arawa rohe at Te Matatini 2015 for Day 1 performances.
The crowd was blown away by Te Pikikōtuku o Rongomai's performance today at Pūtaringamotu.
Tutors and leaders, Tukiterangi and Renata Curtis lead their group onto the stage with a powerful whakaeke, named Te Pikikōtuku o Rongomai.
Their kaupapa is "Ko te reo toku Atua. Ngāti Rongomai – ara ake!"
Here is their mōteatea performed at last year's Te Arawa Regional competition.
