KAPA HAKA PROGRAMME


Practice Performance of the whole programme
While you are watching, ask yourself the following questions:
  • Does it look like I know the whole programme?
  • Am I in performance mode the whole time?
  • Am I scratching, sniffing, moving around?
  • Are my actions strong?
  • Am I smiling, if I'm not doing the pukana?






KARANGA: (Evania/Issy)


WHAKAEKE (ENTRANCE)

Tēnā i poua

Ko wai te tira e takatakahi i te pourangi e

Auē…
Ko Hato Ōpani, ko Hato Ōpani

Hikitia ki runga
Ko Tane Rore

Hāpaingia ki runga
Ko Hine Rēhia

Kakai ana i a rāua taonga
Hei kai (pause)
mō te iwi e

Kei whea rā? Kei whea rā?
Kei whea te oranga o ēnei taonga
Kei ngā taumata
Kei ngā kura
Whiria te taura tangata
Ki te kapa haka

Tau atu! Hi
Tau atu! Ha.
Here is the video of Te Matau doing the actions for the whakaeke. The actions that you are watching on the video are how the audience is going to see them. When you practice at home you need to do the opposite side.




MŌTEATEA

E Tipu, E Rea
Kaea: E tipu e rea
E tipu e rea
i ngā rā o tō ao
tōu ringaringa ki te rākau a te Pākehā
Hei oranga mō tō tinana
tō ngākau ki ngā tāonga a ō tīpuna
Hei tikitiki mō tō māhunga
tō wairua ki te atua,
Nānā nei ngā mea katoa i hanga
WAIATA-Ā-RINGA


U u u u... u u u u
A a a a… A a a a
U u u, u u u, u u u u u…


He kākano i ruia mai
I Rangiātea
E kore ai au e ngaro
He kura pinepine
I takea mai rā
E ōku tīpuna

Kaua e takahia rā
Taku tuakiritanga
Arohaina mai rā


Tukuna te hā kia rongohia
Kawea atu rā ki ngā tīpuna
Nei ahau tō uri... e tū nei

Parepare mai rā koe e te tiwaiwaka
I te paepae o te tautara

E nono titaka te tau te mauri


Ka taina
Ka taina mai rā e te kokako koaka koaka
Kia whakatauki
Kia whakatauki te manu tui
Tuituia i te puaotanga
Kia whakapurua ki te remu o te huia kia whakarongo
Kia whakarongo ki te tangi
A te kawekawea


Kawea mai ra I te tomatomatotanga o te tomairangi
E rongo koe i te pipiwharauroa

Kia whakapaingia ki te manutawhiorangi
Ka puta, ka ora na


Ka puta, ka ora na...i

Whakahokia poi

Taku taura tangata

E kore e makere ki te pō e
Ko Te Kura o Hato Ōpani kua tau

Noho Marae

Mauri ora ki a tātou!
What a fantastic noho marae we had. Thank you to all parent help who could help transport and stay the night. One of the highlights for us kaiako was when the tamariki started to understand and demonstrate the meaning of 'tangata marae' by helping out and doing things around the marae without being asked. Mikaere, Bailee and Issy in particular were 'tangata marae'. We hope that this transfers not only to being a 'tangata marae' at kura but also at home. Please reinforce the saying 'tangata marae' by encouraging your tamariki to take the initiative and help out around the home. 

 
Hoake mātou ki tātahi

He Tupuna he mokopuna. Mā wai i whakakī i ngā whawharua o ngā mātua Tupuna? 
Mā ā tātou mokopuna.! He mokopuna he Tupuna.
