3.30 – 4pm
Ngā Hinepūkōrero – Spoken Word Poets

Event Details

This Waitangi Day, feel the power of the spoken word from two wāhine toa of Ngā Hinepūkōrero with poetry that mixes witty and sassy with profound and hard hitting. 

Ngā Hinepūkōrero is a group of wāhine Māori who have been winning Grand Slam events across Australasia since 2018. They use the spoken word as a platform to bring attention to important topics and issues in our country, especially those that affect Māori, intertwining waiata and te reo Māori in their work to express their love for whakapapa and culture.

Ngā Hinepūkōrero – Arihia Hall (Te Arawa, Ngāti Tuwharetoa, Ngāti Tukorehe), Terina Wichman-Evans (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Whātua, Te Aupouri), Manaia Tuwhare-Hoani (Ngāti Wai Ngāpuhi) and Matariki Bennett (Te Arawa) recently received the Ngā Manu Pīrere award which recognises an emerging artist or collective showing potential in their artform at Creative NZ's Te Waka Toi Awards. 

This event is part of the 2021 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.org.nz
