Ka mihi ki ngā uri o te rohe nei, ratou e noho ana ki runga i te whenua o Te Ūpoko o te ika a Maui!
E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangarangatanga maha o ngā hau e whā! Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.
Kia Mau Festival stands upon whenua known as Te Ūpoko o te ika a Maui – the head of the fish of Maui. The region of Wellington is known for the strength of Tāwhirimatea, the God of the Winds, this is the home of Kia Mau Festival.
From 01-15 June 2019, theatre + dance will be performed by Māori, Pasifika + Indigenous artists and their companies from across Te Moana-nui-a-kiwa and around the globe.
Artists, whānau, friends, communities + audiences are invited to join us in sharing contemporary performance + knowledge from an Indigenous worldview. In 2019, we mark the 5th year of Kia Mau Festival.
