Te Matatini 2019 Venue

Te Matatini 2019 Venue 

With the hugely successful event and celebration that was the Kapa Haka National Festival 2017 Te Kahu o Te Amorangi, Te Matatini shares in the immense sense of accomplishment shared by those involved: iwi, artists, volunteers, supporters, spectators everywhere, officials and representatives alike. Our thanks to you all.
 
In light of recent media coverage, Te Matatini wishes to advise that the venue and dates for National Kapa Haka Festival 2019 are not yet agreed.
 
Setting National Festival venue and dates occurs after discussion with the hosting rohe Cultural Committee and host iwi. For 2019 these are the Wellington Māori Cultural Society and Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga, Ngāti Toa and Te Āti Awa.
 
Elements considered in these discussions include but are not limited to site suitability, locally available accommodation, access to venue and local amenities.
 
Thank you all for your continued support.
 
 
Nā Selwyn Parata
Chairman
Te Matatini
