Umukai at Takitumu

Takitumu primary school’s Maori culture week ended up with a big umukai for the children, teachers and all the parents who made the week a success. (See also CI culture wows Takitumu kids.)
The mamas had mostly helped with showing the kids how to use kikau and play the old-style games.
The papas were in charge of the umu making sure it was ready by 11am.
They put on a fabulous spread although I’m not sure that chocolate cake qualifies as Maori culture!
