Hakapaki ki Te Matatini 2019
We followed four of our Whātua cuzzies and their Kapa haka on the road to Te Matatini 2019 through Snapchat takeovers! Our four whātua cuzzies performed in rōpū across the North Island and were given the title ‘hakapaki’ taken from the word ‘atapaki’ which means Snapchat - See what we did there??
Each hakapaki took over the Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Snapchat for one whole week and did this twice during their haka campaign.Thank you to everyone who tuned in. We hope you enjoyed following our Hakapaki on their journey to Te Matatini 2019. Check out the highlights from our takeovers below.
Te Matatini 2019 may be done and dusted but the Haka action isn't over yet!
Our Hakapaki and their rōpū have each created a video that shows their rōpū journey to Te Matatini ki te Ao. You, the whānau will vote which video you like best and the rōpū with most votes will win a cash prize of $1000. It’s your turn to be the judge. Voting closes Friday 29th March 2019.
