haka workshops by the haka experience

Haka Workshops

Designed to help build unity, purpose and togetherness within teams.

Our Haka Expert will write, choreograph and compose a Haka specifically for your team or organisation.

We will evaluate your goals and core values and create your unique Haka that represents who you are.

Once done, we will train your team onsite over a period of 8-10 sessions on the meaning of your haka (word-by-word) and how to perform it with meaning and mana.

This is a highly engaging and motivation workshop that gets everyone actively participating.

Pronunciation &
Te Reo Workshops

Designed to help build your confidence in the Maori language.

Learn the correct terms and use of the Maori language in everyday life.

Whether your goal is to pronounce Maori words correctly, to introduce yourself in Te Reo Maori with confidence, or, to perform a karanga or whai korero (talking/speaking), we can help you.

We will work with you to create a package that matches your goal and requirements.

Once done, we will train you (and your team) onsite over a period of 8-10 weeks.

By the end of our sessions, you and your team will be able to use Te Reo Maori in your workplace with confidence.

Waiata (Songs) Workshops

Teach your team or workplace a series of Waiata (songs) that are appropriate for your next event or function.

Learn the history, meaning, and background of each Waiata as well as its uses and where it can be applied.

Some waiata include actions (waiata-a-ringa) which will also be taught during our workshops.

Waiata workshops are a popular activity for teams and corporate events and encourages full participation from everyone involved.

History & Tikanga

Designed to teach your team the history of Maori, your surroundings and the protocols of Maori Culture.

Your team will learn a series of different Maori protocols - some unique to your specific area, for example,

  • How and why we welcome people onto a marae
  • Why there is a challenge (the wero)

We can even showcase different weaponry and instruments used by Maori.

These packages are completely customised to suit your team or organisations requirements.

olympus testimonial about kapa haka performance

We had guests from our overseas Olympus offices as well as customers from the medical, scientific and industrial fields from throughout NZ, all of whom were thoroughly impressed by your team last night. Our guests were so moved by what you shared of our culture, with some quite emotional afterwards, even shedding a tear or two, and our senior management team are still talking about it today! Some of our NZ guests had never had the opportunity to see our culture that close-up and it emphasised with them how unique, strong and proud our Maori culture and heritage is.

I wanted to take this time to properly connect, the USANA family felt the aroha that's for sure and that's exactly what I had hoped for too! Some cried, many got emotional and some blown away literally! The emotions that were spoken forward were a connection hundreds if not all, hadn't felt in a very long time and ignited a ripple effect of hope and a sense of belonging too! Thank you very much.
