Kupu for Kids

Have a go at saying these kupu (words) in te reo Māori.

Ihi - an energetic force
Te whare tapere - theatre 
Tūnga whakamihi - curtain call
Tūrama - lighting
Te papa tūwaewae - stage
Whakaharatau - ​practiced
Kākahu - costumes
Kaimātakitaki - audience
Tuaroa - backstage
Whakaaturanga - perform

Now let’s put it all together in a little story:

A kapa haka group stood tuaroa (backstage) ready to whakaaturanga (perform). They had whakaharatau (practiced) for weeks; they’d made some awesome kākahu (costumes) and were ready to show the kaimātakitaki (audience) their performance. As they waited for the tūnga whakamihi (curtain call), they could feel the tūrama (lighting) hit the te papa tūwaewae (stage), and just like that, the ihi (energy) came from their bodies and they took over the Te Whare Tapere (Theatre).
