  • About the Book
  • Te Matatini (the many faces) is the world’s largest celebration of contemporary Māori performing arts – the Olympics of kapa haka. This national kapa haka festival is held in Aotearoa New Zealand every two years. In 2022, Te Matatini celebrates its fiftieth year, and this book (alongside an album and web series) honours the festival. The book captures key memoirs from people involved in the festival since 1972. It features images from kapa haka stalwarts celebrating key moments in Te Matatini history, while also honouring those who have passed on and remembering their contributions through a legacy dedication section.
