Te Maurea Whiritoi

The Te Māori Whiritoi Performing Arts group from Hamilton, New Zealand has experienced much success at regional and national competitions, winning first place in a variety of sub-categories. The name of the group leader is Toti West. They aspire to travel the world and share out culture with people of all ethnicities, and learn from then as well. The name “Te Maurea Whiritoi” talks about weaving together the male and female elements of performance, as well as weaving the sacred knowledge of the past to lessons of today as we journey into the future.
