Kia ora koutou katoa! Ka mihi ki ngā uri o te rohe nei, ratou e noho ana ki runga i te whenua o te upoko o te ika. E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangarangatanga maha, tēnā koutou katoa.
Kia Mau Festival stands upon whenua (land) known as Te Upoko o te ika a Maui – the head of the fish of Maui. The city of Wellington 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 (the Pacific Ocean) 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.
