What it is that people value about kapa haka? Help us to understand!

This is an invitation to participate in a survey that explores what it is that people consider important about kapa haka.

There is very little research on kapa haka and why people consider it important. Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence is conducting this survey to increase our knowledge of kapa haka, the benefits derived to people and why people consider kapa haka to be valuable.

Toitū te whenua, whatungarongaro te tangata
Waihoki, e te purapura tuawhiti kua riro,
Kei te mumu ahurea tuakiri, e Piri,
kua tāwhaitia te paenga taumata okiokinga.
Mahue mai te nuipuku e tangi apakura nei
 
Ringihia mai a hūpē, a roimata nā te tini makiu
Mākū katoa tō Rongomaraeroa ātea
Huri noa i ngā whakairinga kōrero o te motu whānui
 
Kei te ihuoneone o te reo me ōna tikanga.
E te pia pono nō te kawa o Tāne Rore
Kua ngū, kua moe tāu wahaika
Tō te atua tā, tē papare, tē kakaro.
