Come together and let your voices soar throughout Tāmaki Makaurau to mark the start of the Festival – three weeks of uplifting arts, culture, celebration and kotahitanga/unity.

Join Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei as they lead us in launching the 2021 Festival with karakia and ceremony. Sing along with Pere Wihongi and Maaka Pohatu to Māori songs that you grew up with – ‘Pō Karekare Ana’, ‘Tūtira Mai Ngā Iwi’, ‘E Pāpā Waiari’ and many more!

Piri mai, ka tuku ai i ō koutou reo kia rere ki ngā tini tōpito o Tāmaki Makaurau hei tohu i te tīmatanga mai o ētahi wiki e toru e rewa ai te ngākau i te ao toi, i te ahurea, i te whakanui, otirā, i te kotahitanga.

Kia piri tātou ki a Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei nō rātou ka ārahi i te whakarewanga o te hui Ahurei 2021 ki te karakia, ki ngā tikanga. Waiata tahi ki a Pere Wihongi rāua ko Maaka Pohatu me ētahi waiata Māori nō tō tamarikitanga – ko ‘Pōkarekare Ana’ tērā, ko ‘Tūtira Mai Ngā Iwi’ tērā, ko ‘E Pāpā Waiari’ tērā, ā, me te maha noa atu!
