Kapa Haka Roopu Manawa Mai Rawhiti preform at the 'Kiwi’s in Perth' get together, held yesterday in Kalamunda, Perth.

For those of us that don’t speak Maori, here is some help with the words.
Kapa Haka:- concert party, haka group, Māori cultural group, Māori performing group.
Roopu;- group, party of people, company, gang, association, entourage.

Manawa Mai Rawhiti is the name of the group and I can’t find a defining meaning and don’t wish to offend anyone by getting it wrong.

As the day was organised through a group called Perth Maori it was good to connect with other Kiwi's in Perth and have a sense of whanaungatanga, (kinship). It was a great atmosphere, everyone seemed happy to be there, kids having fun, doing 'old school' stuff. People playing games, throwing a football, a netball, sack and running races; plus I got some great captures of people just being people. Yes it was an enjoyable day, thanks Marg.
