It includes performances by contemporary Māori artists and Auckland’s top kapa haka groups, workshops and talks, Māori crafts and kai, traditional games, healing and ta moko, and storytelling centred on the stories of Tāmaki Makarau mana whenua.
The on-water programme includes tribal waka races, have-a-go waka experiences and sailings.
Active iwi mana whenua waka tauā, Te Kotuiti Tuarua, will be present at the festival. Auckland Art Gallery will have an exhibition and activities on site.
