Te Pao a Tahu

 
 

Formed in 2013, Te Pao a Tahu is a Christchurch-based kapa haka group, created out of a desire to retain Ngāi Tahu te reo (language), tikanga (practices), and kawa (customs), and to bring together descendants of Tahu Pōtiki. Although the group is pan-tribal, the majority of members have affiliations to Ngāi Tahu. After debuting at the Waitaha Senior Kapa Haka Regionals, Te Pao a Tahu qualified for the national competitions, Te Matatini, in 2015.
