Ki-o- Rahi Tāmaki

Screen Shot 2023-03-17 at 4.25.27 PM.png

Traditional Māori Game - 2 sessions - BOOKING recommended

Based on the legend of Rahitutakahina and the rescue of his wife Tiarakurapakewai, this tākaro is a reflection of Tupuna story telling at its best, as well as provides an insight into the way in which they would explain and design Tākaro to reflect their unique "world view". The Papa Tākaro (field) layout of Ki o Rahi and the way the Tākaro is played is a perfect example of this.

Session times are: TBC
