Takitimu is the ancestral canoe of the Ngati Kahungunu tribe and traces its origins to Samoa and the islands of the Pacific. The goal is build on the success of the inaugural festival of 2008 for the descendants of Takitimu mai i Hamoa ki Rarotonga ki Awarua ki Murihiku. Descendants of the Takitimu canoe include Te Tairawhiti ki Turanga nui a Kiwa, Te Aitanga a Mahaki, Ngati Kahu Tamatea o te Taitokerau (Northland) and the South Island (Ngai Tahu).

The culture of the people of the Takitimu canoe is evident in the diversity of our language, music and art. Add to that, the modern interpretations of contemporary Maori and Pacific art forms has given birth to new expressions, a contribution for which all Maori will be identified and benefit.

With a variety of musical performance, art exhibitions, wananga, theatre, stalls, speakers and workshops, it can be said that there is definitely something for everyone. Come and celebrate with us.
