It's becoming a common sight: kapa haka performers with traditional Māori moko taking to the Te Matatini stage. But is it time to depart from the drawn-on moko?
In the lead-up to Te Matatini 2019, Te Kāea has 13 special features focusing on the disciplines and practices of kapa haka. Each one will play out every night until the official pōwhiri for Te Matatini Ki Te Ao (excluding Waitangi Day) starting from February 3. Make sure you check out our sneak peeks and extras on our offical Te Kāea Facebook, Instagram and YouTube platforms.
