This Waitangi Day, feel the power of the spoken word from two of the wāhine toa from Ngā Hinepūkōrero with poetry that mixes witty and sassy with profound and hard hitting.
Ngā Hinepūkōrero are a group of wāhine Māori who have been winning Grand Slam events across Australasia since 2018.
They use the spoken word as a platform to bring attention to important topics and issues in our country, especially those that affect Māori, intertwining waiata and te reo Māori in their work to express their love for whakapapa and culture.
This event is part of the 2021 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
