The Girls in the Kapa Haka By Angie Belcher, Debbie Tipuna

Tahi, rua, toru, wha – join in with this read-aloud celebration of kapa haka!

New Zealand’s favourite story celebrating the Maori performing art of kapa haka is great for the whanau to read together!

These are the poi that circled and twirled

above the heads of the singing girls

who wore the piupiu that swished and swirled,

made from the flax that Koro cut,

that the mussel shell scraped,

that the kuia made,

that swung from the hips

of the girls in the kapa haka.
