The Girls in the Kapahaka by Angie Belcher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This story is about the kapahaka group: the boys and girls who take part, and the way that the whole whanau is involved in the preparation and performance of the kapahaka. Children will absorb a lot of information about Maori culture and language from this fun and attractive story. For further information, a glossary of Maori words is included at the back of the book. The rhythm of the text is based on the traditional children's tale "The House that Jack Built". For example, "These are the piu piu, that swished and swirled, that swung on the hips of the group of girls, who sang in the kapahaka."
