This footage was taken during the first hui/meeting of all the Manaiakalani Schools held at Pt England School, Auckland, NZ.
As part of this amazing event The Principals from the 12 Manaiakalani Cluster of Schools, decided that a special Waiata or Haka be written specifically for welcoming the Hikianalia crew and passengers.
Our Kapa Haka tutor Patrick Gemmell wrote this Waiata Tira for this occasion. You can click here for more information (translation) about this special song. Here's our first practise together.
