Haka Powhiri for NZSE Graduation
Date of Event: July 26, 2018
The Haka Experience set the tone at the NZSE (New Zealand School of Education) award ceremony, opening the occasion powerfully and passionately.
An eloquently performed Karanga (call to guests) supported by a powerful Haka Powhiri traditionally welcomed the mass of graduates and their family and friends.
The audience settled with warm greetings from The Haka Experience followed by a polished set of items that entertained the crowd.
The elements of this performance encompassed a range of musical items, beginning with the signal of the Putatara (conch shell) which indicated the opening of the occasion followed by the melodies of the guitar which accompanied the harmonies of waiata-a-ringa (action songs).
The elegance of the poi and its unique beats humbly hit the hearts of the audience while demonstrations of traditional weaponry added a positive sense of strength and energy to the atmosphere.

“I wanted to take this time to properly connect, the USANA family felt the aroha that’s for sure and that’s exactly what I had hoped for too! Some cried, many got emotional and some blown away literally!
The emotions that were spoken forward were a connection hundreds if not all, hadn’t felt in a very long time and ignited a ripple effect of hope and a sense of belonging too! Thank you very much.”

“You guys have been awesome. The way that you've brought Māori culture to Shanghai is a credit to Te Wehi Haka. The use of Māori culture internationally is powerful, especially in Shanghai.
Our company Fonterra have introduced te Reo Māori and Māori protocols as part of our workplace which has added value to the company.”
