Rakahanga pe'e at Te Maeva Nui

Here's another short video from last year's Te Maeva Nui dance competition.
This one is of the northern group island of Rakahanga with their reo metua (legend) or pe'e (chant).
This category has been called the pe'e in the past but in 2012 it became the reo metua on the programme. The chants always involved legends or historical events from the islands concerned, based on the theme of the competition (this time it was "Traditional language of our communities and islands".
Rakahanga received a B grade for this item.
