We are HIWA!
We are an Auckland based Māori Cultural performing group.
HIWA derives from the wishing star Hiwa-I-te-Rangi, which is part of the Matariki cluster. Our ancestors would send their wishes, hopes and aspirations to HIWA for the coming year.
We are often the first teachers/sharers of our songs, poi, haka and cultural practices to our manuhiri (visitors) and our rangatahi (young people). We are proud ambassadors of our cultural heritage and knowledge here in Auckland and abroad.
Allow HIWA to create moments of aspiration through song and dance by telling the stories of our ancestors in a fun and interactive environment.
