Tomorrow we have our powhiri. We have been practising parts of it together: the karanga (women's welcome), the haka and waiata (songs). We have also discussed some of the different stages of the powhiri together and made posters. The six stages we focused on were:
- karanga and haka (welcome call and dance)
- whaikorero (speeches)
- waiata (songs)
- koha (gift) - hongi (sharing of breath)
- hakari (feast).
