This was very well done and enjoyable. The Singers and Dancers, the Poi's and the people. They were so good and friendly and they let us take photos with them. One Gentleman even swapped my husband's stick for his Spear. How neat is that!!

We spent an afternoon in January with Kena Alexander. He was an excellent guide, who gave us a really good introduction to Maori culture, which we didn't really know much about.
