Ki-o-rahi is a sport that represents the 7 stars for matariki. It is a legend or Rahi and the Patupaiarehe. The ball is called Ki also the sport is played in New Zealand . Ki-o-rahi has different kind or spots mixed together like netball touch tag and rippa. For Ki-o-rahi You can tackle but to other people it is just a beginning game so it would be better to wear tags instead.

There are only 7 players on side in Ki-o-Rahi. Ki-o-rahi is mainly played in france and New Zealand.There are  2 teams and one team is called Kioma and the other is called Taniwha. The kioma team scores by running along the Te Ara and scoring into the pawiro.

Ki-o-rahi is like a rugby game but you can throw the ball in front of you. It is a good sport to play with your family if your family has an outing. I really enjoy the game Ki-o-rahi because it is really fun and funny watching people slip if it’s muddy. I hope you and your family play Ki-o-rahi and see what it feels like playing.

Kahurangi Performance

Walking into the hall all I was wondering was “ Why are we in the hall and it’s a Monday? ”. Taking a seat on the floor all I see is a beautiful girl standing in the corner or the hall wearing Maori costume.

There was awkward silence in the hall then all we see is three people coming from the back or the stage. “ Kia ora everyone we are the Kahurangi  performance group and we are here to tell you some stories about what happened before you all were born,” the Kahurangi group said. They introduced themselves and then they performed.

As they were performing and also telling us a story about what happened to the Maori people before we were born.  For three people they sound really good when they sing and perform and I think that they are the bestest kapahaka group I have ever seen in my life. As they were finishing up my kapahaka teacher told our kapahaka students that we are going to have a workshop with them and I couldn’t WAIT .
