Maori Medley – Iwi [Waiata]

This weekend we had our first one-day-wananga for Te Ara Reo Māori L4.  Here is the waiata we learned, a medley which includes some war songs.  It starts with the war song Hoki Mai (read about the original and Rotorua versions here).  Next up is “Pa Mai” (link here)  Following that is “Manu rere” and lastly it ends with more of “Hoki Mai”.

E tutuki te tumanako

Kei te kapakapa mai te haki, te haki
