Ka tangi te Tītī, ka tangi te Kākā, ka tangi hoki ko ēnei Pīpī Paopao!
The Tītīchatters, the Kākā cackles, and the Kererū coos - which Mānu are you?

Pīpī Paopao is a performance for tamariki aged 3-5 year olds - and their adults - which adopts the unique characteristics of our Manu Rangatira (noble birdlife) through waiata and play.

Pīpī Paopao continues the Māori traditions of using proverbs and metaphors of the natural world to teach and prepare our own little hatchlings; so they too may flourish and fly into a world of their own.

So whether you’re fluent in Te Reo Māōri or your journey is only beginning, come and explore the beauty of a language that echoes the sounds of Te Taiao (nature).
