Don't miss the famous "haka" war dance and "tititorea" traditional stick game that takes place in the Whare Runanga. The object of the "tititorea" is to toss carved sticks to each other without dropping them. This activity is used by the Maoris to develop quickness of their hands and eyes. Come see how they do!
